Life on the beach, what could be better? Not much and living in a Coastal Waters Condo puts you and your dog right on the sand with a front row ticket to some of the most spectacular sunrises you will ever see. The condo offers a swimming pool, but why use that when you can take your dog out on the dunes and play in the ocean?
There are several places to eat within walking distance, including some fast-food places and a few sit-down restaurants. However, there are many more of both within driving distance serving up an incredible variety of cuisines. There is also plenty of shopping nearby, both of the tourist kind and the day-to-day kind. The one thing you will have to drive back over to the mainland side for is a good pet supply store. The good news is that the weather will never prevent you from going out for supplies or walks with your dog!
Living on the beach presents you with a rather unique situation with regard to terrain and traffic. First, you have the traffic on S Atlantic Avenue that tends to be busy all hours of the day with locals and tourists. Then, of course, you have busy sidewalks filled with tourists to weave in and out of with your dog. On the other side of the condo is the beach itself. Unlike many beaches around the country, cars are allowed, so now you have vehicular traffic to deal with here as well.
This can make for some very challenging walking conditions. It would be very easy for either you or your dog to become victims of a nasty accident. The best time of the day to take your dog out for walks here is in the early morning before things get busy or too hot, keeping you free from roaming vehicles as much as possible.
Having a condo on the beach puts you on one of the largest green spaces in the state. You have the option to take your dog out for long walks on the sand instead of on the pavement. It will be far more comfortable for them to walk on and the two of you can use the soft sand to add some challenge, using the wet sand for the return journey. This is an excellent way to exercise and then cool down in the ocean at the end of it!
The best time to go walking on the beach is in the early morning before it gets too hot or crowded for the two of you to be able to get the most out of your walks. If you prefer walking in the woods, the Spruce Creek Preserve offers you over 1,600 acres of nature and three miles of trails that take you all the way to Rose Bay.
