... so we bought this beach house.
By 1987 we had acquired the habit of spending 2 weeks each summer at Sea Isle. Rentals were beginning to be expensive and we were getting
tired of having to sneak our pets in. One day driving down Gulf Drive, I spied this little house that had been on the market for over a year.
It was soundly built but needed a lot of TLC inside. The selling point for us was it was second row with an empty lots in front. At that time,
hurricane Alicia was still fresh in everyone's mind and beach erosion was a real worry. We liked the idea of a buffer lot in front. After much
negotiation, we and the seller agreed on a price and so we bought this beach house.
View to the East. The tan house was posted after Hurricane Alicia (1983). The owner was not allowed to make repairs
for several more years.
View to the South from the deck. There was no walkover, just a path through the dunes.
