I would love a place like that, bu I am too afraid of Mother Nature to purchase a coastal property. My mother had a place on Lake Huron with the lake
as her backyard. You can’t beat the views on the water.
We lived 4 blocks from Lake Erie when I was a little child, during the winter, for 4 years. (My bricklayer step-dad had a winter contract relining a
furnace, so every year was 1st Nov. to mid March....we ended up in the same house every years, think he rented it from a relative. The road literally
dead ended into a public beach, I think it was a summer vacation home for one of his brothers, I believe.
Snow drifts up to my 9 yr. old chest, accross the entire street, wasn't uncommon. Neither was 1'' or more of ice on vehicles. IIRC, his position came
with a large truck, not a semi cab, but larger than a moving/Uhaul cab, He would tarp the cab at night, to avoid problems getting in.
The wind was killer, cold, and constant. No playing outside (TG we had cable and an Atari 2600), etc.
Great when we visited in the summer, hell in winter, but he made double scale doing this.
