Calm Seas, Soothing Surf....All Good Things Must Come To An End!
We've been a little quieter in the social media arena than usual over the last 9 days, but we've got a pretty good "excuse"! We've been on our first real vacation in about four years! We beat feet for Atlantic Beach, NC and after a 12 hour drive arrived at the beach house that Liz's family has rented every year for almost 40 years straight.
It's a mass convergence of that side of the family! Liz's parents, all four of their children along with each of their spouses and a total of 6 grandkids! All in all, 16 people in the home at peak capacity! Fortunately the home is huge, and just a few steps down the wooden boardwalk to get to the other side of the dunes!
The first few days the ocean was remarkably calm! Here's a video clip to give you a sample of what it's like to sit in one of the rocking chairs on the covered back deck and just enjoy the waves softly coming ashore!
We had a great stay, and stayed pretty busy doing all the regular things we do here! A few favorite eating spots, a couple of trips to Big Oak Drive-In, a lunch visit with our Active Rain friends Amy & Marian, a visit to the Aquarium, a few trips into Beaufort for some shopping and waterfront dining, all in all a great week! And since our last trip here the beach house owner installed a secure Wi-Fi, so we could pretty easily keep up with the critical items while we were out of town!
And proving the old saying, if you want an offer on a listing, just leave town! Last night around 5 p.m. we got an offer on one of our listings! Today on the long drive home we'll be talking to our seller and working on a response.
Next week we have a new listing coming on the market, so the reintroduction to "normal" life will be rather rapid!
And considering the long drive home today, expect a LONG gap before we respond to comments!
On the road again......
