    The farm is somewhat secluded with direct access to the ocean. There are small towns within walking distance where you can catch a bus to larger towns. The basic activities consist of fellowship and nature enjoyment, watching the sunset over the ocean, walking on the beach, swimming in the ocean, going fishing, watching the many different types of birds, doing art projects and eating fresh and delicious food and UNO cards in the evening!!!!
