This pretty much captures the whole town.

Its a nice place to live except for the hoards of bicyclists gumming up the roads and the inebriated geriatrics looking at the leaves in the Fall. I can take the geriatrics more than the cyclists. When they bunch up in groups of 10 to 50 you can hang up passing them on the winding roads. And a lot of them now wear body cameras in case they get run off the road, attacked or well... run over.




You're living my dream(well, that and the beach). How? Do you commute far every day to work?

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

11 mile commute that takes maybe 25 minutes because I drop my kids off at their schools. As for the beach, my parents have a second home on the mainland side of Pawley's Island, SC. It's a 4.5 hour drive away. The beach itself is nice but WAY TOO many people live down there now. When we go I hit the beach at 7AM and an gone by 10:30AM at the latest. It is the only way to have the beach to yourself, "mostly". The tourists are there to relax and don't wake up until I'm starting to think about heading back to the house. That house is on 2 acres of land in a spot you can only see one other house nearby. It's a pretty nice setup and you can't find that kind of seclusion along the coast much anymore. I remember when Pawleys Island was a 7-11, The Hammock Shops, a Red & White grocery store and a caution light at the Northern Causeway. Seeing the place all built up now is like seeing an old strung out heroin addict that used to be a beautiful young girl. Its painful to me to see it how it is now.

On the way home I like to stop at the general store in Salters, S.C. to get a country ham leg. Food of the Gods!!!

I looked up the area on Googlemaps and it seems like there are many town names which end in "combe". I'm sure there's some fascinating historical reason for that. smile

I'm almost 52. My kids are 9, 12 and 14 years old. I have a little ways to go. I have a hard time with crowds so I try to live on the edge of "civilization". If my wife would let me I would live a place like Deliverance and I would be the one playing the banjo.

Hi PM, a coomb is a valley, so you do see it a lot! It's an old word - they even have it is Welsh, written cwm

Salcombe is one of the most expensive places to buy property outside London. It's deserted in winter though. It is very pretty and still has the remains of a wartime US landing craft repair base on one of the beaches.

We are really lucky living here.

Right now I'm sitting on a pile of money, I plan to move to a rural area next, unless property prices continue to drop so low that I'd be tempted to buy in a decidedly nicer part of Vancouver.

Until then I have to stay in an area infested with the likes of trailer trash, Somalis and Surrey Jacks.

It's also considered to be the epicenter for the correct, textbook spoken High German!

The downside is, I can't speak regional dialects, locked in to "formal German" for all eternity.

Miami, Florida - United States...
I live relatively near Miami Beach. Here are some shots of this interesting city:

Ocean Drive at Night. This is now (for many years) an mainly if not all tourist area but something to see if you never visited the city. In my time (90s) it was very different, it still had the Miami Vice feel.
[Linked Image]

A shot of the actual "Miami Beach" from a non disclosed apartment. Very Nice! as Borat would say.
[Linked Image]

This a day shot from "Lincoln Road" another semi tourist area but has many bistros, restaurants and shops.
[Linked Image]

Ocean Drive during the day. with classic cars from the 50s and 60s, that was for a photo shot. Day to day you would instead see Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bugatti, etc. rented or owned.

I lived in S. Miami for a year in 1966...then moved back to the "Space Coast".

I was a displaced surf kid from "up the coast". I hung out at S. Beach pier, and Beach Bagels.

Lots of future "international business connections" were made just sitting on a surfboard hoping a ship would go by winkngrin dreaming of the occasional storm surf, or timing my arrival at Beach Bagels for the freshest egg bagels coming out of the oven! Yummmmm!

Life changing experience for sure.
