For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to live by the sea. Growing up, I was lucky enough to have some respite from the dysfunction of my family and spend my summers in Puerto Rico. Some of my happiest memories as a child were spent there: chasing iguanas with my sister, terrorizing my abuela's cat (not in the sociopathic sense, just a little fun), seeing who could eat more raw oregano off the vine (this was perhaps one of the dumbest things I've ever done), and falling asleep to the cool beach air and waking early to roosters. As complicated and sometimes as difficult as life got for me, I have always found the beach and ocean to be supremely comforting. There are few materials items I TRULY want in life but this is one of them...a home by the sea. Given the opportunity, would you live beside the ocean?
