When we moved 21 years ago – from Western New York –
to Northern Va. my thought was we are now in the South!
We actually picked up another four to six weeks of better weather
on either side of winter!
We liked the area – going into Washington DC on a regular basis.
We purchase three homes while there – two that we actually built.
We had most of our family follow us there.
But – it still got cold and three times –
an accumulation of snow greater than in all the 50 years we lived in the snow belt!
Now – we are calling this home until our home we are building if finished
some time in the next 4 to 6 months!
Home has a different meaning now – and we have become comfortable now here.
Enough that when you have that yearning to go back home
visions of what awaits you run through your mind!
While dating almost 40 years ago – we spent a week in the outer banks
with my brother and some of his friends.
That is when our bond for the ocean became a fixed state in our minds.
Our Vacations revolved around different trips with our children
to beaches up and down the East coast!
Home is where the heart is – and while we could not find a home here –
we are building one close – 14 miles away at another beach address –
OCEAN ISLE BEACH in North Carolina!
It is a 30 minute drive North of here – so we can often come back to walk!
There are two beaches there within 4 to 6 miles –
Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach!
Home is where your heart is – and now our hearts are in the deeper South!
Where warm is Sun – no snow – ice – and 50 plus degrees every day!
