After a ridiculous amount of hand-wringing, people backing out, unrealistic price expectations and viewing actual dumps of houses, we sent in a deposit check today! We have half of this adorable cottage:
And are so excited. It's smaller than other places we looked at but it's one block from the beach, around the corner from the bar we love, and, most importantly, clean. Hardwood floors and a new bathroom - what more could we ask for?
Last year my friend's brother had the house next door and he had a great time and said the owner next door was nice which is a good sign. I'm so excited to eat dinner on our porch and then go out. Is it summer yet?
