"Summers In Chatham"
An exquisite children's book by Susan Baird and illustrated by her talented niece, Danielle Berg, which touches upon all the joyful moments of a summer in Chatham.
This is a story of sand and sea
Of being together
In a magic place made
For you and me.
Of love and family,
And taking the time
To be together
Just to unwind.
Of giants, sandcastles
Sun filled days and starry nights.
Looking at the Lighthouse and
Feeling its healing light.
But, most of all,
It is a story of our vacations in Chatham,
And what they will always mean
To our family.
