Today, I am going to share with you exactly why I fell in love with our Island Home and it wasn’t the lovely floral wallpaper that covered just about every inch of that house! Nor was it the lace curtains!
Nope, it was the view.
I knew this was the house for us when I could look right past the ugly! When the sun was setting, it was just magical. I have never seen a sunset more beautiful.
Even though I despised the interior, I fell in love with that house. The house had great bones but it was just ugly, there is no other way to put it…
…oh but the views from just about every room in the house…amazing!
It never gets old! I feel like the minute we cross that bridge everything just gets better. Life just gets easier.
That’s what I am talking about… cocktail hour on the porch watching the sunset!
(Hi Aunt Jen, We Miss You!)
I think this house is best when we have family and friends there for the weekend!
I love the large wrap around porch. I love sitting in the rocking chairs watching the boats glide past, watching the sunset or just reading a good book. There is usually a nice breeze coming in off the bay to keep it cool.
To the left of the wrap around porch, is another one of my favorite spots. It’s a screened in porch with double fans. This is where we like to eat dinner. We have a table out there right now that I haven’t refinished because I keep thinking I need a larger one. I don’t know, maybe I will give it another season and then decide!
This is the drawbridge you must cross to get on the Island. It is the busiest drawbridge in the United States.
Meet our little turtle that hangs out on the riprap. This little lovely was left behind by the former owners because she was too heavy to move. I find her charming.
So that just about sums up why I love our Island Home. She is not perfect but she is perfect for us!
Until next time…
