High and Dry

Sandy and Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act.

Both became part of our vocabulary in 2012, and continue to affect real estate ownership/construction along the New Jersey coast.

If a structure does not conform to the height elevation requirements of FEMA, the property owner pays a substantially higher flood insurance premium (regardless of actual flood damage from Sandy).

And if a major renovation project is planned, the municipality will require the owner to bring the house up to code for elevation (a long standing construction regulation).

Examples of house lifting projects underway in Avalon (metal beams around the house in preparation) and Stone Harbor (masons building the new foundation):

Vacation versus Travel

Both are near and dear to my heart- yet completely different experiences.

Travel: venturing to a unique destination with the purpose of seeing the sights.  It can be “work”- studying guide books in advance, learning a few keys words of the language, and following an itinerary.  Travel is both thrilling and exhausting!

Vacation: often it means returning to a favorite location.  It’s easy – you know the best shops and restaurants.  There may be a routine, but it probably involves a bike ride after breakfast.  No real schedule- except for dinner reservations or a tee time.

For so many families, our island is the ideal “vacation”.   I understand :)

Work Break

Location, location, location!  My office is just 2 blocks to the beach.  Glad I thought ahead this morning and put my sneakers and iPod in the car.

An hour walk with salt air and sunshine…and now back at my desk :)

Wildlife Wonderland

Hat, gloves, and a fleece jacket for this morning’s chilly beach walk.

Rewarded with dolphins riding the waves (the dots on the blurry picture are dolphins), assorted shore birds, and hundreds of geese flying overhead  in a synchronized “V” formation- on their way to warmer climates.
