Mary had a zest for travel and was fortunate to see many ports of call. Her passion for water led to many memorable beach adventures.

“The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too inpatient, one should lie empty, open, choice less as a beach waiting for a gift from the sea”—-Anne Morrow Lindbergh
