I've stayed in 6 different houses in this small beach town that I vacation in each summer. The deal is find the house you like and hold onto it as long as possible. Tonight I lay my head upon the king size bed in my room at a home known as Sun Dispatched.
Sun Dispatched has been our vacation home of choice for the past four years. We happened upon it after driving around to look at what was available. My sister and I liked its proximity to the beach- it's about a 50-yard walk to the sandy path that goes over the dune and onto the beach. The porches that surround the upper floors of the house offer a view of the ocean as well as a distant peak at the lighthouse down the highway in Avon. There are just enough bedrooms to accommodate our group comfortably and there's even a hot tub for everyone to enjoy.
Tomorrow is the last day that we renters can go ahead and hold the same vacation home for the same week next summer. So at some point tomorrow Jeen and I will drive down the road for a little shopping and gallery browsing- perhaps we'll have a cup of coffee as well- and then we'll head over to the realty company and sign on the dotted line for next year's beach vacation.
Once that's done the countdown will begin all over again.
