    Heh heh, not to make fun of you, Mitzi, but you, um, may want to check out the spelling on that last sentence...Okay, so I am teasing, but all in good fun!

    The Florida summers are a bear. We lived in central Florida most of our lives, transferring to northeast Florida when our son was 2. We like it better here. But there are bugs. I swear the palmetto bugs are going to need collars and a license too.
    But here is where I will stay. I won't get my husband any further north. He was born in Florida and was my son but I was born in West Virginia.

    Mitzi, now I gotta keep my wife away from you too! First Desert Rat posts about his great new house in Nevada, now you're bragging about your beach in Florida My wife would kill to live by a beach, but- I HATE the heat. The 90 degree summers here are plenty for me! Fortunately I think I can keep her out of Florida because of the bugs [Wink]

    I'd love to live in NC or TN but I'll never get my Florida boy husband to move further north then we are now. I do like living 5 minutes from the beach though. I would probably miss the beaches if we moved. I just hate the Florida summers though.

    I really want to live along the water. i cannot afford to live at the Jersey shore, and we cant afford to keep the family house now that mom is gone.

    I was thinking of Maine before, but i might check out Cape Cod. i really love it there. all i need is a very small house, and it doesnt have to be on the ocean, as long as its salt water a marsh or bay would be fine. i cant stand the heat, so i cant see myself moving south. i hear alot of good things about NC though, and i did have a couple good vacations along the shore there.

    That's beautiful, JB! I wish our weather would make up it's mind. One day I'm in shorts the next day, jeans. I'd love to live where you knew weather it was summer or winter for a month!
    The beaches are growing in leaps and bounds here. Our house is 3 times what it was worth when we first bought it. It's just amazing.

    Here's a couple of my pics of Avalon, NJ.

    I usually dread the heat of summer... but this year i am looking forward to ANYthing that will get rid of this dreary, dirty, icy snow and COLD.

    Actually, the areas affected by it mostly are on the beaches not used on a regular basis. And that's because they have made them so hard to get to. Things will go fine for awhile then some beachgoers will get fed up with the *no tresspassing* signs or there is a confrontation and all hell breaks loose. I wouldn't live on the water, personally. But those that do seem to have a hard time understanding that, tecnically, people have every right to walk between houses if they do not show a designated beach access.
    I've lived here almost 25 years so I basically know how to get to the beach fairly easily. The ones that get the most upset are those that don't regularly go to the beach or are weekend beachgoers.

    I bet litter is another issue that the property owners have to deal with on a regular basis.

    It wouldn't do for me to live somewhere that I had to allow people to cross my property. I'm still looking for a good place to be a hermit.

    I remember when i was a kid, we'd be sitting at the kitchen table at the shore house. It's not on the ocean, but on an inlet. We'd see a family with kids and floats in tow, walk thru our back yard and head down our dock to go swimming! that's when my dad finally put up a no trespassing sign. people are desperate to get to the water!

    Well, when they buy or build houses, they know up front they have to provide beach acess. But I personally don't know of one house that has it. There is kind of an uneasy peace in that the city tries to provide as many acesses as they can. But every now and then there is a problem. The biggest problem is on the beaches that aren't used much. The homeowners kind of see the beaches as their own. Sometimes, people will just get fed up and use the side of their lawns to get to the beach.
    When my son was little, it was a battle with the motels. I would drop my son off with other mothers and their kids and the only place to do it was at a motel parking lot. I used to regularly get into it with a motel manager because he said I used his pool and I didn't. But I did use the beach access to get to the beach. I finally shut him up when I told him to PROVE I used his pool (and I didn't) and that I knew what was really wrong was he didn't want me using access to the beach by the side of his pool. *heehee* I made it my only beach access after that! lol

    Beautiful pic! makes me want summer!

    i have a couple "secret beaches" in Avalon, also. but during high season, even the tourists are spread out onto them. it's just too crowded on the Jersey beaches in summer. give me Spring and Fall down there anytime.

    Beaches here can be privately owned. A lot of the houses on the east end of long island, specifically in the hamptons, come with their own private beach.

    I just watched "City By the Sea" with Deniro. The title refers to Long Beach Long Island. Long Beach is in Nassau County. It`s a perfect example of how a state, county, city and it`s "residents" can turn beach front property into a garbage dump.

    NYC is no better. Coney Island and the Rockaways are for the most part ****holes. Consider yourself lucky.

    I understand granting access to the beach, but I would hate having people tramping through my yard to get to it.
