Serendipity Sundays ~ Embracing New Urbanism at Rosemary Beach

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

I've been missing in the Rain as I just got back from a wonderful week at Rosemary Beach, FL with son and family much fun and loved our beach house. Spent time catching the surf on the 30A Seacrest Beach, pool time, shopping, eating good sea food, watching son and grandson come back from a crushing day of fishing! It felt like we were in an idyllic, parents riding bikes to wherever..a safe environment and Elsa missed us so we had great weather!

I love the concept of the New Urbanism...a return to cozy streets, a slower pace, enjoying the sights and sounds and not feeling the need to frantically run through the day missing what is important.

Hello Dorie - your absence is not only excused but it sounds as if your time away from The Rain was a much needed respite that can prompt rest, reflection and recharging.  It seems as if Summer School is in session.  I see the three R's so that's an A+ in my opinion.

Morning Dorie.

Good to have you back.  We are going to Florida in February.  I believe it will be at Siesta Key.

Rosemary Beach looks like a gorgeous place to spend time, Dorie.  I haven't been to the ocean in over two years. . .It's time!

Hi Dorie... I've never heard of Rosemary Beach. It sounds wonderful.  I live in a new urbanism type of neighborhood and really love it. Always wish there were more of them around.

Good morning Dorie. Getting away to recharge the batteries, especially with family in tow, is a necessity we should not overlook. Glad you enjoyed it!

Hi Dorie - that is a perfect life with children and grandchildren in a rental house.  We just did the same thing off the coast of Connecticut.
