I was born in Florida, just steps away from the beach, and Florida is where I met and married my Wonderful Husband, but we now prefer living in the desert, it agrees with my Parkinson's disease. However, that did not stop us from having our own Beach area. We created a water scene in our gravel yard, complete with lighthouse, water, sailing ship, flying fish and birds of all sorts in the "white rocks" beach. We even have a castle! And our screened in porch area next to it is all decorated in beach theme as well, with water skis and an oar on the wall, a marlin, colorful beach theme banners and a tropical print rug.
As you can see, it's quite beach like. However, we have a real beach just 3 hours away in San Diego California. We went there yesterday to cool off, it was only 40 degrees cooler! While I was there I spotted this beach front $2 million home and noticed that they had "decorated" with all things nautical as well. The big difference between us..........I'm sure he paid big $$$ and I got most of mine at thrift stores for $1. This Parkie ain't stupid.
PS My friend Mary L, whom I know from the chat room, suggested I write a song called The Thrift Store Queen. So, of course, I did and here is the video of it. Just click the > to play it.
