Nicholas...last August we drove the intracoastal  along Broward County area knowing the entire time that those homes on the ocean-side were not in our league or the reverse. They are beautiful to see now & to recall from our trip.  Hoping to make the move to the Vero area -non-water- before we get too old to make the move LOL.  Little situation of 'selling here first' LOL.
