I have been fortunate enough to have sailed the seven seas and been around the world in some of the best accommodations.

I can’t decide if it is Patrick and Barbara’s home on a cliff beside the sea is the best or if it is the location that is the best? The home is simply a jewel box and the setting like crown jewels. The craftsmanship and art in the home is stunning  and looking up, well, it just takes your breath way. 3,000′ mountains leap us from the estuary which lies at your feet. Want to shake hands with an octopus or catch a salmon from the dock, want to have  bald eagle aerobatic display overhead as you sip your chardonnay? With the living room spotting scope, spy on about l00 seals basking on the nearby sandbar. People come from around the world just to experience the tides that go up and down 20 vertical feet in 6 hours.

Trust me, this will be a lifetime experience for you and your family /friends!
