Catch a Wave!
For the first three years, all we did was work on our beach house. I didn't even realize that my husband, Brian, liked to fish. Brian has even caught some fish that we ate for lunch one day! Brian and my son, Gabriel, who is nine years old, plan on taking surf lessons together in a few years. Gabriel is your typical nine year old digging in the sand and body surfing whenever he can.
Gabriel is not the only one that one that body surfs, our 11 year old golden retriever, Anna, does too. When she's not swimming, she works at a hospital as a therapy dog on the children's floor.
I'm Laura. I took all the photos of the house and decorated it. Occasionally, I get stuck with painting too. I wanted to make the house a place where you could relax and enjoy the place even on a rainy day. I own my own interior design business back at our permanent home.
We got married in the outer banks and it's always been a special place for us...we say "A moment in time".
Our house is called "Anna's Beach Cottage" named after my grandmother from Italy that came to Ellis Island in New York in 1902 as a passenger in steerage on a ship. When I first saw the house, it looked like a boat to me so I knew it would work.
One last thing...sometimes your cell phone doesn't work here...which I think is great.
We have had two previous exchanges and we extremely happy. One was in southern Spain and the other in Colorado.
