We had such a ball last night. There were three of us, we were missing our 4th member of our group, so we called her on the phone in the Midwest and put her in speaker and it was like having her there, lol. She stayed on the phone for a couple hours till it went dead.
We were at times laughing hysterically at the stories we had to tell. Soooo good to belly laugh. Today we’re going to some art place called The Blueberry Patch. Then to some place that my friend whose house we are at promises is awesome pizza.
I’m thinking I’m gonna meet with the realtor again at some point before I go, put in an offer and leave a check with her. I can’t tell you how much I love this little house. And to live a mile from a beautiful beach!!!! There are so many cute shops and galleries and great restaurants here. But it’s small and largely undiscovered by the throngs of tourists that come to FL. It’s the height of season now, and in so many beach communities here the traffic and crowds are unreal. But not in this small town at all.
3 doors down from this house is a community garden where you get a little patch of ground to grow whatever you want. People plant veggies like cabbage and kale along the sidewalks here, for the purpose of anyone who wants or needs them taking them. Kind of a passive “feed the world” thing, and it makes attractive landscaping too!
I love the progressive and kind of liberal attitude here. Bohemian almost. The house I love is yellow with orange shutters, and light green trim. So Florida!! So many houses like that here, bright vibrant colors, unusual artwork and sculptures in their yards.
Plus, even tho the house is only a mile from the water, it’s not in the flood plain! So I don’t have to worry about that crazy hurricane insurance. Plus the back yard has a couple of big trees for shade, so important here.
I will love it here I know. Especially with friends and family nearby. I have to get this house!!!
I’m feeling really blessed this morning. Love and light, all.
