Beachin Mod

A blogspot dedicated to the development (and now enjoyment) of a modern beach cottage on the Florida panhandle. This site will take you along my stumbling path of what it takes to build a simple, modern, affordable, and green beach cottage in Laguna Beach, FL near Panama City Beach as well as some insight on the many other distractions and diversions in my life.

Everyone Likes Good Grass!
Well, maybe not the the sod variety, but I do! Just returned from a quick visit to the Casa and boy has the front grass area really greened up. We laid this down last September and it quickly went into winter dormancy. I did a little weeding on my knees about 5 weeks ago and walked away from it. Lots of rain in the area has obviously helped too. Got a non-powwered reel mower at a garage sale for $5! and boy does it work great on this small area. Got it all mowed and now I am online looking for a good croquet set! I am really enjoying the simple pleasures of a small place. It really makes sense in so many ways. It also is a pleasure to take on the outdor tasks and see the results without any one project becoming overwhelming. Also leaves time for quality events like going to the beach with the girls, taking a nap, or a little boat trip over to Shell Island.
