Here is the house--what's not to love?
The kitchen has two full-size refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, and all the things you could want in a great kitchen. We ate two meals out and the rest of the lunches and dinners we prepared for each other--a great way to share the week and the kitchen duties.
There are two complete laundry rooms, lots of living space on each floor, each of the 8 bedrooms has an on-suite full bath, and there is an elevator--great for bringing the groceries to the 3rd floor. I spent a little time in the indoor heated pool, walked on the beach a few mornings, and generally loved the sight of the ocean from our various sewing stations. The lighting was excellent and I got a lot done.

The Blue Collection applique' project is a Block of the Month I bought in 1998 and the last time I worked on it was 2005. I am re-energized now to keep going. My applique' skills are somewhat better now and I am really enjoying this project. A few other small things got done and I learned a few computer skills I hoped to learn.
My outdoor shots are not so great but here you can see we were across a street from the beach:
The house shots I opened with come from the Realty website--here is what it looks like when Quilters arrive.

One of our group got up very early each morning and this is what she saw the last day of our vacation, a spectacular sunrise. Sorry I missed it:
All in all, I had a wonderful week, met new friends and learned more about old friends. I highly recommend a week at the beach to warm your soul! Even in November...
