This beach is literally about 150 yards from my front door. Seen here, I got up early to see the sunrise over the ocean (three more similar from the same morning).
The down side to living on the beach though is THERE'S SAND EVERYWHERE!! I feel like I'm becoming OCD, picking up the broom and manically sweeping away some sand every five minutes or so. Life is hard ;)
Things appear to be going quite well workwise and all.
