i know how you feel, ive lived in coastal regions most of my life but i prefer mountains and open spaces. everyone thinks im crazy but never been a big fan of the ocean lol. I'm sure you'll grow to enjoy it more, sounds like it is more suitable there for your family!

Kevin, hahahaha that was a hoot. I always say "it is better than a finger in your eye!!" "Bert" (Dick Van Dyke) said that in "Mary Poppins" and it just cracked me up.

Kiwigirl, I am so very sorry that you will have to live at the beach amid the sand and surf. Life just sucks.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

I prefer mountains myself, problem here is they are so muddy for half the year you can't ride 'em. Just for that reason I've thought about moving to the coast just to make year round riding easier and we do have mountains right up to the beach. Kind of would be best of two worlds. Alas, there are scanty job oppportunities on the coast in my field. What few there are mostly don't pay that well.

Sorry, can't find my violin. It's somewhere in my crappy overpriced house on less than 1/2 acre. Maybe it's up at the barn where my horse is 40 minutes away from me. Do you have any idea how lucky you are?? Soooooo envious right now.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

thanks for all your "sympathy" guys, lol! I guess I will just have to suck it up and get on with my beach riding. On the other hand I have been busy ringing land owners around the area and there is some very promising big country I have got permission to ride in, not to far from where I am. The only thing that has me a little nervous is the fact that in order to get to it I have to brave a main highway. It is a major highway, very busy with lots of large trucks and very little verge to ride on. I am pretty confident that Phoenix will take it in her stride as she does everything else but I am definitely a little apprehensive and will probably stay nervous until I have actually ridden my way through it.

Once I have tamed that dragon I think I will have the best of all worlds. Iwill get my self organized and go crazy with the camera.

You know Skyseternalangel, if you decide to head to Taranaki I can definitely hook you up with a horse for a ride on the beach. Just say the word, I would love to accommodate you.
