Our oceanside village has only one road in. The terrain is rugged, wild, and beautiful. The community is a mix or retired people, families, and some single and young people. The economy has been mainly based on fishing, with a boom in construction for awhile.

We look out for each other and the empty houses. Crime is very minimal.
