Here we are, gals

I was wondering if you felt like taking a trip..........
Here -I was, ya, out on the end of this beach walk. Yes, very nice. I agree...(ocean roaring, surf spraying, smell the salt air..oooooohhmmmm..) Yoga with me everyone...

This is a place about 20 minutes from my house. There are about 4 houses built out on this parcel of glorious coastline. The beaches here are almost remote. The awesome thing is, about South Beach is that the dunes are very close to the sea.

Remember how I said I was all about texture? Well this is it. The mellow color and feel of the rushing sea grass blowing, then out to that wonderful foamy white wall of life ebbing and flowing. AWESOME. I have always lived near the ocean, I hear that there are people that have never even seen it. That is very WILD to me.

These are the interiors that my moms girlfriend Janet has taken out to this "vacation retreat." The furniture came from her place of employ, she wanted the special extra added touch to this place, so she called my mom..I just went along for the ride Actually.

As I look at this first photo of the sofa, theres nothing in that shot from my Grand Heron. Nothing in this bathroom sink shot either, well maybe the white candlesticks. Thats it. The beautiful sunburst mirror above that dresser came from us. Dont those little dinky lamps look awful. We nixied those. AS IF!

Clock in the Kitchen is from us, and
That is it.

Mostly our items were in the bedrooms and in spots that I guess I didnt get photos of.

Anyway, this is what you can get for $1M out here. The location is to die for, but.. I just am not a modern gal. I love cottages, and old shacks with history and style from the passed. These new vessel sinks and the lithium lights strung on tiny little wire, well, they just arent me. So, ready for a getaway?

Oooohh. I like it. But I am partial to ANYTHING by the ocean. I would live in a one room shack if it were by the ocean. I wish I had a million dollars.

I am one of those people who have only seen the ocean a handful of times. I love it SO much!

If I had a million dollars, I would like to live by the ocean. If I had that million dollars to spend, I would have an old cottage fixed up with old cottagey things. I don't do modern either. Come back to my blog, I re-did, or added to my post. Where are those crab legs?

You crack me up. I don't think Ville actually is a vampire, but even if he is I still love him. You have to listen to them! Go to We are not too old to rock, and Ville is in his 30's, so I don't consider him off limits...ha ha!

I also live by the water (the sound, not the ocean) and can't imagine not seeing it every day. We also have views of Mt. Rainier and the Olympics and when my cousin for Arkansas came to visit he was amazed. He had never seen "real" mountains before. Unreal :0)

I'll take it.
I can't believe the location...literally right on the ocean! You are so lucky to get to see that every day.
