Since I was a kid, I have been in love with the ocean. Something about the sound of the waves was soothing and I loved the feel of the sea on my legs. I was a super lucky girl. My grandparents up and moved to Hawaii when I was 5 and I started school barefoot in Kailua. It was such a rude awakening to come back to California and have to wear shoes!
It was in my childhood ‘dream board’ to get back to the ocean, and I so blessed to live in Hillsboro Shores and manage luxury oceanfront vacation rentals and sell beach houses and beach area properties – there is nothing like the beach.

I am guessing that Pompano Beach may make the list next year. The Community Redevelopment Board has made wonderful improvements to our coastal town – it was so wonderful to enjoy the opening of the new Pier Parking Lot tonight which includes a concert stage. There was great music and food.
And there is a great little subdivision of Pompano Beach called Hillsboro Shores – this is one of my favorite parts of Pompano Beach.
