When I chose to make 30A my home 10 years ago, my main focus was the beautiful white sandy beaches and emerald water and slower pace of life.  I no longer had some of the conveniences I was used to in suburbia, but the trade off was worth it to me.  After living here several years, I actually started to become more aware of the other things in this area that are true natural treasures.  In addition to the miles and miles of trails to run and  hike in the surrounding state forests and the beautiful bay areas, I fell in love with the coastal dune lakes.  These rare and ever-changing lakes that meet the sea are truly remarkable - to read more about them, click here!   When rain fills them up, they break through to the Gulf and the result is a mixture of ecosystems and salt and fresh water and it is an amazing thing to behold.  

Since my husband and I love the outdoors and the water, moving to one of the dune lakes became a bit of an obsession.  The thought of hopping on a SUP and paddling to the beach sounded to good to be true.  We made the plunge and moved to Eastern Lake three years ago.  And while my love for the gulf remains as fervent as ever, my love for the lake life on the gulf is alive and well.  There is something so soothing about living on the water, and hopping on a board with my beach towel and sunscreen and being at the beach in a few minutes is pretty amazing.  darla ogle real estateTo find your perfect place on a coastal dune lake or anywhere on 30A, click here.
