Living our dream

We have always loved going to the ocean, but became tired of driving to it on scattered weekends.Several years ago we made the fateful decision to buy our own beach house as an investment. At the time we lived in Fairfax, Virginia; a five hour drive to our beach house. About a year later we came to the conclusion that we needed to be closer to the Outer Banks. The house in Fairfax was sold, and off we went to Virginia Beach to start new jobs, and a new life at the beach.Although living in Virginia Beach was nice, and brought us much closer to the Outer Banks we were still less than completely satisfied. After having sold and purchased two more beach houses, we found; and fell in love with the home we currently live in. No more commuting; No more renters; No more missed sunrises; Life is good. I will remind anyone that has ever dreamed of doing what we did to be quick about it. there is no better time than the present.
