Coastal Living – February 2010

One of my favorite parts of Coastal Living is “Lindsay’s View”.
Lindsay is the editor-in-chief of Coastal Living and he has the most incredible way with words. It’s always such a treat to read his stories.
There was something extra special about one of the paragraphs he wrote in this months “View”.

It says,
The evening after my interview, I wandered from my room to the water’s edge, and for the first time in my adult life I felt like the person I truly wanted to be: unguarded, imperturbable, utterly content. I don’t know about you, but wherever and whenever I’m gazing at the shore in the half-light, I vow to hold on to that feeling of peace and carry it with me always.

I really connected with his message because I find myself vowing to do that very same thing every time I stand before the sea and watch the waves dance with the sand.

One day, I hope to live a little closer to the ocean- in a tiny timeworn cottage that smells like summer and feels like freedom.

The February issue of Coastal Living is filled with lots of photos of beautiful, beachside abodes.

On page 36, you will find a house made of shells and stones…

There’s a story about an open-air villa on page 68…

And on page 86, you’ll find an article titled, “Haven on Earth”…

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about all three places, and it made me look forward to visiting Tybee Island even more!

Just Beachy” on Tybee Island, Georgia

I’ll sign off with one of my favorite sea-inspired quotes…

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Hope you’re having a great weekend!
