Driving down US 98 we spot a sign advertising PF Chang just two miles after our turn off to Top Sail State Park. The last time we went to PF Chang was in Cincinnati. Making a mental note, we make our turn, get registered and find our parking place.
Soon we are off to PF Chang for a wonderful dinner. It was almost dark when we returned, so we were unable to go for a walk on my favorite beach in all of Florida. Soon you will know why.
The next morning, I get to work and Bob gets to walk on the beach. Oh well, we did come here for a week to get caught up. Two fiscal-year clients need their year end financial statements and corporate tax returns. Here is what I am busy doing:
And here is where Bob gets to go:
After working all day on Saturday, I decide on Sunday morning that I too, am hitting this beach. How often do you get to walk on beaches like this?
It's cold and with no recent storms, the water is crystal clear. Have a look:
On Monday, after work in the morning, we head to Seaside. The remarkable thing about Seaside is it was designed back in the 1960s. At the time, it was a big architectural concept, to have an entire community set in one style. Today, your original investment of about $40,000 would be worth more than $1,000,000.
These houses are all vacation homes. There is no economy here other than tourism, and of course, summer is the high season. How nice to be here in late fall! This next picture is of some yard art we came across:
If there is one comment we can make regarding Seaside, it is more like being in Disney World than in the "real world." The strict controls make for a very artificial like setting. Although charming and unique, there is a sameness that permeates the entire town. The old adage applies: It's a great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live here!
Finally, some originality. I loved this old Airstream trailer conversion. Finding this is like a breath of fresh air. Time to head back home and find a deli for a sandwich.
