A Tropical Breeze Turns 15 and Gets a Face Lift!

We celebrated A Tropical Breeze's 15th birthday this year with numerous improvements and upgrades. The salt air is tough on a beach home and we constantly fight rust. Many of these improvements are to replace rusted areas or protect from future rust.

These updates included a new oven/stove, commercial hot water tank, all exterior white trim painted or replaced with white vinyl, replaced all screen porch materials which makes for a much nicer and clearer view of the beach, new chairs and all new cushions on the screen porch, regraded Blue Water Drive, added shelves in the laundry room, new canvas picture of A Tropical Breeze sunset over the master bath, wood look tile on the lower set of stairs, new propane tank buried to prevent rusting, new toaster, new coffee pot, new pots and pans and a few other items.

The Retired Life at Cape San Blas

My husband retired last month and we are enjoying three weeks on Cape San Blas. We have never been here for more than 10 days so this is a real treat. The first week we didn't have the best of weather and we spent a lot of time working on a Tropical Breeze getting ready for the summer rental season.

The second week we were joined by our extended family and had an amazing week of fun, fishing, food, beach time, family pictures, and so much more.

We are in the midst of week three with two other couples and a few of our kids. Tropical Breeze has guests for the week so we are staying down the beach in a different rental home.
