If we have one thing in common, it is that we all live somewhere.  Some of us have lived our entire life in one community. Others, myself included, have lived so many different places that we never really call any one spot home. At the moment, I live less than two miles from the Gulf of Mexico, but I cannot tell you how long it’s been since I went to the beach.  This blog is my attempt to change that. I welcome you to come along as I explore both the natural beauty and the community that works, lives, and thrives (or not) along the Emerald Coast.
