Two million dollar home

Location, location, location

Without steel bulkheads

Though it was just built

Float away it would

After all it’s only built of wood…


Nothing can fight the rising seas

No amount to Nature can be fees

The ocean does take back

What for many years & mans interruption

The ocean did lack…


One island cut in half to two

Does make most beachgoers blue

But as for me, the ocean should take her share

Keeping dirty humanity off her beach

Trash won’t be left strewn, her beach left bare

As it should be there…

Another wonderful write Ed, a beautiful home but truth is nothing is meant to last forever. Should have just built a little Beach house and saved your money. I'll drop by for a visit sometime. Thanks for sharing.

Right on, Ed! The sea will have what is rightfully hers. The very first native americans knew that - about 15 thousand years ago when the North American glaciers were melting off and the sea was rising, as it still is.

Lucky you been by the sea agai. I am just going to take a day soon to go on a trip to Atlantic City by bus, when I arise early in the morn. Just to sit and watch the people strolling by and eat some french fries and possibly ice cream. Love to do that and have not done in a while.

I truly agree it should be.

This reminds me of a wise man who built his home on a rock; the winds (sea?) came, and blew - the house stood. The foolish man who built his house on the sand - the winds (sea??) came, and blew - and great was the fall of the house. Excellent -

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

You got it right, Ed. The sea giveth and the sea taketh away.
Hang on to your boat -- and Rufuz. - Gene.

A house of sticks with foundation of sand...must be a politician's summer home...
Blessings and happy beach-combing :o) ~~ Micke
