My dear friend Ava (AKA: Broad “A” on The Review Broads) and I both left Rhode Island at about the same time. We sold our houses at the height of the market and embarked on new journeys. She ended up in Utah near her boys and I headed south to Florida. While both of us went to areas that had family, they couldn’t be two more different regions of the country.
I could never live far from the ocean or a city. I need both in my life. The quick pace and limitless activities feed my tendencies for boredom and the ocean is my tranquilizer when it’s all too much. I am temporarily in the ‘burbs, but a quick drive to both (ocean: 12 min. drive, 4 major cities as close as: 45 min – 2 hrs). Ava ended in the mountains for her ahhhh…..and lives within the confines of the city. Still, I miss driving through the White Mountains (NH on the weekends) and she misses the blue waters and whitecaps. She asked that while I was in RI last week that I take a picture of the ocean for her.
Ava – this one’s for you….
