[Erik Jacobs for The New York Times]

It's during this time of year (with the air getting colder and the sun setting at a heart-breaking 4:12 pm) that I start to daydream about summer. In my warm-weather yearnings I came across this New York Times story from August about a house in Narragansett Bay. The upkeep for the 103-year-old manse (called Clingstone) sounds intense, but something about living so close to the water speaks to a sense of romantic adventurer in all of us, don't you think? (See more photos of the house here.)

Tell me Globe-trotters: do you live by the water? How do you safeguard your seaside home in winter? Leave a comment below and let us know!
