Hey sis, remember your morning coffee spot? A bit chilly there this morning!


And finally, our buried house as we round the corner onto our street ending our walk:


And so, as another day goes by, more and more I realize how much I love coastal living because it is never boring to living on the ever-changing shore, and…I have written.

Life begins on the edge of your comfort zone:
