    What else ...

    We are right by the going out on the water can be a daily thing...
    I live on an island..surrounded by marshes..nature..parks and across the street from our private beach...about 5 miles from the bridge that crosses into St this may not be ideal if you like a busy citylife.
    If you prefer daily city life this will not be a good choice for you unless you have your own transportation.

    Thank you
