Catherine Nassa has been spending summer days at Narragansett Town Beach for nearly all her life.

She’s not sure if it’s 45 years; it could be 48. She’s 53 now. Her parents met as freshmen at The University of Rhode Island, and Nassa was born in 1967. As a baby she lived “down the line,” a part of town popular with students, and says that the beach is “in my blood, [and] in my family’s.”

It didn’t stay in Charlestown long.
