Wednesday Views

Another beautiful bay AND beach day yesterday.

The tide was just right in the morning to allow access under the 104th Street bridge – that sign doesn’t apply to kayaks ;)  It’s a bit tricky with pilings and pipes…but the 12 year old in me likes to give it a try!

And then a picture perfect afternoon on the beach.  Life is good…

Thank you!

Sorry I missed one of my “blog fans” this morning. Thank you for the nice treat from your home town! Very thoughtful.

Always fun to meet blog and twitter friends in person!

Wednesday = Day Off

Yesterday’s weather was ideal.  Pressure to REALLY enjoy my day off!

Started with bay kayaking.  Then to the beach- a wonderful cool breeze off of the ocean.  Spotted Santa (Christmas in July) saying hello to the surf campers on 81st Street.  Outdoor lunch at the Windrift. Then an evening treat from Sundae Best!  Full day :)

Monday Morning

Sun has returned.  Temperatures remain moderate (especially for July)- warmer air returns this week.

Shopping Weather

The retail shops and bars/restaurants LOVE this weather.  To me, it’s a “sit on the porch with a good book” afternoon (my plan after work!).

The forecast is back on track this week for better beach days and brilliant sunsets :)

How Does This Work?

RentSighTenants arrive, unload their cars, and then try to figure out the mechanics of their vacation rental.

It would be wonderful if all property owners posted a welcome note with basic instructions for the wi-fi, electronics, thermostats, etc.  Every home is different- and most have a few quirks.  Knowing these things while settling in prevents frustration, and is a positive reflection on the home owner.

Tenants are more likely to care for a property if they feel accountable to an owner (not just an investor).
