Retirement Dreams

It's probably not a healthy obsession, but I dream a LOT about retirement.  Why exactly it is I seem to be dreaming away my next couple of decades, I'm not sure.  Images of a life of leisure, I suppose.  Right now our retirement dream is to own a house on the beach and a house in the mountains.  We would live on the beach on the winter and then rent it out during summer high season.  Vice versa for the mountain house - live there in the summer and rent it out during the winter high season.  Sounds nice, doesn't it?  Possibly unrealistic, but I'm hoping 20+ years (IF we meet our other goal of retiring early) of planning might get us there.

Because of this dream, we spend a lot of free time looking at beach real estate.  The Highway 30-A area of Florida is my favorite - the area including Rosemary, Alys, and Seaside beaches would be perfect!  This house featured in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine is along that stretch of beaches, and is just gorgeous.












One can dream, right?  Does anyone else dream of retirement like this?

  1. That's a nice dream you have. Well, I dream of enjoying these in my retirement too, even though that the chances are low for m. But still, good luck to you.
