We choose to live near the beach – but on the mainland side of the ICW!
We are out of the flood zone – but within 10 to 15 minutes of two beaches – Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach – and near several more beaches.
We also love golf and are in the middle of 20 to 25 golf courses!
We have excellent friends who live about 33 miles from us and we try to get together whenever possible to golf!
We have known them since they were our neighbors back in WNY in 1988!
They first moved down here some 25 years ago and we have been in contact and on vacations ever since.
We have met new people where we live and have been to several parties. Here we are in our driveway – and the group went caroling around the neighborhood while I remained and watched the fire.
Our home is decorated for Christmas – we love it here – country but 30 minutes to North Myrtle Beach and just 15 minutes to Shallotte and Calabash.
We are close to theaters, amusements, Wilmington, N.C., and Southport.
We have been through a Category one Hurricane – and anything over Two – we will leave.
SUNSET FROM OUR DRIVEWAY – and we also see SUNRISES FROM OUR DRIVEWAY.
WHY WE CHOOSE THE CAROLINAS TO CALL HOME – NO ICE OR SNOW!
We are happy here in retirement – living our dreams and life one day at a time. We do go back to NVA often to see family –
and they all have been down even our family from NWPA!
