Having a beachside house is like living in a paradise on Earth. Surrounded by aqua blue and green waters, with various hues of the sky, everyday you can witness nature’s serene beauty at its best.
Endless ocean, blue water, dreamy sky, tranquil beach, love in the air, mind fly high.
― Debasish Mridha
Imagine this scene: you’re standing on the porch of a beautiful sea-facing house, listening to the beating waves, with salty wind caressing your hair, and the rustling palm leaves creating a beautiful resonance. What if this is reality? A friend of mine has a beachside property, and I consider her very lucky indeed.
Many of us rush to the beaches during the summers to beat the heat, and enjoy the tranquility and vastness of the sea. But those who stay near a beach are indeed lucky, since they need not make a special effort to go there. They enjoy the perks of having a natural scenery right in front of their house, and also enjoy many health benefits of living near the ocean. Don’t you envy Charlie Harper’s (Two and a Half Men) beautiful beach house? For a moment I wished I was Alan (or his son), and could overstay at Charlie’s house forcibly for as long as I wanted!
Well, you can certainly relate to the following things if you live near the beachside:
You get to enjoy the scenic beauty everyday, and also can see the canvas of the sky after sunset, a scene which most tourists miss.
