The beach house

The beach house ... not really on the beach.  The house we rented  was either a 2 minute drive, 5 minute bike ride, or 10 minute walk from door to shore.  It looked out over horse stables and corrals.  Not too shabby.

Door one.  Which is probably, technically the "back door".
Those bags on the steps ... my rock/stone collection.



the door from the inside.... a quaint antique door



Winding stairs to second floor and foyer


The different stair spindles.  They inspired me.


Walking in the above door, you look right back outside 
through the door across the foyer 


Screened in porch was a favorite kickback spot



 Gathering spot for watching the Olympics


sitting room (with another tv)
(we never used this room)


stairs. again.  view from kitchen and dining area.


no staging this house for photos
we are moved in and on vay-cay-shun 


Grab a bike


Let's head to the beach


it's a nice ride on quiet, tree lined, winding streets 
lined with  fancy cottages and humble cottages 


 leading to the stairs to the beach


a quiet, private beach


< sigh > 


books, magazines, beverages, snacks
check!






dawn to dusk
love the shore
