In Quebec...

In Quebec…

Annie Graves is a travel writer with deep roots in New England, even as she is also drawn across the Atlantic, toward the irresistible diversity of Europe (all that pastry…).

As a regular contributor to Yankee magazine, this native New Englander likes to swerve off the map and explore the unexpected, embracing our weathered clapboards, pointy church steeples, idiosyncratic cities, and stubborn fortitude with a familiarity born of countless winters, but also looking beyond and beneath the surface to find and convey the subtle poetry of our small, distinctive region of the Northeast.

…on the Champlain Islands…

As a homeowner who is one quick step ahead of major repairs, she is also keenly attuned to the beauty of New England architecture, and contributes home and garden stories to Yankee magazineSee House and Garden

For more than 10 years, she has written regularly about natural health alternatives, including herbs, homeopathy, and various healing modalities. See Health

  1. Dear Annie,
    My wife and I are long-time South Jersey beach goers, we own a summer place in Brigantine (just North of Atlantic City) and I can vouch for the fact that Brigantine folks lay claim to being the Greenhead Fly Capital of the World !! A dubious distinction to say the least, thanks for spending time shedding light on these maleficient monsters…
    Kindest Regards,
    Patrick and Angel Sasso

    Hello Annie;
    I was just brushing up on my green fly lore when I found your piece in Yankee on them brutal little Mothers (who would have imagined the expression true in this case!) Anyway thanks for spreading the word (tongue in cheek) before its too late and Im glad they let you off the beach and I off my boat alive. Please take precautions…at least one is bound to get through…..
    Thanks for a good read
    Great South Bay, NY
