You can take the girl from the coast but you can never take the coast out of the girl... or something like that. I'll be the first to admit, I'm an island girl through and through. I'd even go as far to say that the Pacific Ocean flows through my veins (ok, maybe thats taking it too far). Either way, I will always be happiest living near the ocean.
Fortunately, here in San Fernando, we are surrounded by beautiful coastline. Unfortunately, the beach near our current apartment is unswimmable (thanks to the greywater that drains untreated onto the shore).
However, I am happy to report that mid October we are MOVING!!!! We've found a cute two bedroom house across the street from the surfing beach in San Juan. So here's to miles of white sandy beaches, surfers, cheap beers, and hopes of a night life! Life is good!
