The New and Improved Beach House!
We all went over to the beach house yesterday to see Nora and Gene. We picked up T on the way, and then Alex came over later.
I've been meaning to post some pictures of the upgrades to the building and to our condo. The balconies were all cut off and replaced, and the smaller patio doors were removed and replaced with glass windows and doors that fill the entire front wall of the condo. It really looks spectacular, and brings the outside in. The beach is in pretty good condition. There is a lot of sand, and it is building up in front of the building, so much so that the sea wall is almost covered in sand and is only about a foot tall. After the hurricanes it was about 7 feet high.
Normally at this time of the year the weather is pretty cool, and I can't remember the last time the kids went swiming in January. Yesterday it was in the 80's, and Catie and T swam for hours. The pool deck was upgraded, and some fancy tables with umbrellas were added.
