    It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. I’m sorry! It’s been busy!!! Even though I say I work 24/7….I hope you know that I can’t LITERALLY work 24/7. I do have a house to clean, dogs to play with, husband to pay attention to, bills to pay. I love to work in the yard…although it has been sorely neglected this month. I’d love to exercize everyday but unfortunately that is the first thing to scratch off the list when I’m running out of time!

    So….I’m forcing myself to blog today. I’m only going to tackle a few issues today and concentrating only on Mexico Beach to St. Joe Beach. I’ll try to update you on the Cape and Port St. Joe later today or tomorrow!!!!

    First of all………Happy 4th of July! We had a great 4th of July week. The beach was packed. There were over 400 runners for the 5K!! Congrats to all those who participated. List of winners!

    mexico-beach-snapperSnapper season ended yesterday. Chip had a great “month” of fishing!!! The snapper were plentiful and large!!! There are other fish in the sea though…..king, dolphin, spanish, black snapper, grouper!

    If I’ve said this once, I’ve said it a zillion times…..It is all about the price…but also..Mexico Beach has ONE OF A KIND HOUSES…no cookie cutter houses. Each and every one of them are different in size, location, condition, charm…..So when you find one you love……if you don’t buy it…there probably isn’t going to be another one on the market next week.

    Interest rates are just unbelievably low…sales prices are low…..let’s not dicker over a couple grand to get the house you want!

    247521 – Details: 403 NEW MEXICO DR, MEXICO BEACH, FL – $229,000–QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD

    Okay, gotta get busy………..more later!
