It’s not every winter that the island has extended freezing temperatures as it’s having this week, and, fortunately, the island was spared the brunt of winter storm Grayson.
Since the island in winter is just as beautiful as in the warm months, we share some photos of the beach and elsewhere taken the first week of 2018.
