Back from the Beach


Many thanks to Emily and Matt for inviting us to join them at the beach last weekend. Seaside Florida is just 6 hours away from Baton Rouge and is a very unique resort community. The architecture is planned such that all the buildings go together, but each is unique and interesting. Lots of variations on picket fencing, use of bright, pastel color schemes, and fantastic decks and patios. The town has everything you need or want within walking distance, though at a premium. The record store was well stocked with indie music to help on my quest for my album of the summer (more on that later). The house we stayed in was called Topisaw and you can see a virtual tour with 360 views by going through the vacation rental search part of the site. We were fortunate to stay in the tower, where we left the windows open and felt the ocean breeze as we slept each night. The house is a block off the beach so we could see the ocean as well as the interesting buildings of the town. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Thanks again, Emily and Matt for a wonderful weekend.
