That sounds better, but our pool is still too cool until we get past 74-5 and we live on the coast in SC. In July, Aug time the pool gets to bath water temps as does the Ocean.

Sounds like your yard is pretty crowded...;-)

Mid to upper 70s in July. Massive fireworks on the beach, too. Most homes here are either on one of two lakes or a canal. We are on a canal for kayaking from our backyard. Also in our yard are deer, mallards, blue heron, raccoons, bald eagles, otters, beavers, trout and an occasional coyote. Bears also spotted.

It's the Pacific Northwest. Three hours from Canada. It's supposed to be cold in the winter. But so darn beautiful. Cooler temps keep us from getting overcrowded. We still don't even have a stop light in Ocean Shores. But we do have a library, three-screen movie theater, FM radio station and six miles of beaches that you can drive your car on.

With average ocean temps in the low 50's, what's the point of living by the beach there? Am I missing something?

At the beach, without a doubt.

My wife and I are on the opposite ends of this question. She prefers the beach and I prefer rolling hills or the foothills. She also prefers to cruise so being fairly close to a cruise terminal would figure into the equation.
