Since the house is in winter mode -- water is turned off -- we were only able to visit for a day - but we chose the most beautiful day of the 3 day weekend to be on the Island. The weather was just perfect. We opened all the sliding glass doors to let in the fresh ocean air. The Island was a bit busy as well - people were out walking on the beach and along Atlantic Avenue. We met quite a few people, and even had unexpected visitors. Turned out we were home when the real estate was showing the house to potential renters. Once they saw the house and the views - they booked a week right away. They were sad that they have to wait so long for their vacation. We too were unhappy when it was time to go... it's so hard to leave.
