The Bridge…

Screen Shot 2016-02-26 at 9.05.30 AMIt’s funny but I don’t like to cross the bridge.  I have no problem driving up A1A to either St. Augustine or Daytona but the thought of having to go inland makes me try to think of something else.  When I used to have a store in town I would chat with visitors about how cool it was that almost everything you need could be found within walking distance.  Unfortunately for me I have not achieved the level of organization I strive for so I find myself visiting the local grocery store several times a week but one day I have hopes that my needs will be met with a simple visit to town on my bicycle.

    I can’t say I know what that would be like but I would sure love to find out. I love the ocean and spent a lot of time in the keys as a kid. Oh the times we had snorkeling, fishing, skiing, and just enjoying the surf. Somehow I ended up marrying the greatest guy in the world however his love is the mainland, woods, going for hikes, camping, and the great outdoors. My husband being the great guy he is knowing my love for the ocean got me the next best thing a little home on a lake. So my little lake house has the reminders of the ocean all around me shells, starfish. Glass dolphins etc. . It may not be the ocean view I always wanted but it sparkles the same with the love and hard work of a man I so adore. Thanks for the article it reminded me of what I really have to be so thankful for. 🙂

    I too, love to stay beachsid…. gas station, party store, cool places to eat and drink and oh yeah, the pristine view of the ocean, whether I am doing errands and banking in a car, or stroll 3 blocks from our house to just be in awe of the beach. I am always proud to live at the beach, where doing errands are a pleasure. However………. 1 mom, 1 daughter and 4 granddaughers later, I can go to just over the bridge and under it. And then of course once you have done that, Publix is just a shot away…… One really good thing about going over the bridge, is the awesome view and feeling you get when you come back and know you are coming home to our little beach town. I feel grateful every single time. 🙂
