Things To Do On Your Waterfront Property
Things to Do on your Waterfront Property
Most people find no lack of things to do on their waterfront property, especially because they are often visiting during a holiday trip. Vacationers often have the opposite problem-so much to do on their property and not enough time. However, if you've made the switch to living full-time on your waterfront property, whether for retirement or while you are still working, after awhile you might want to add some new activities to your routine.
Living on waterfront property is a definite lifestyle choice. Most often it is made by people who desire, a slower, calmer lifestyle. But, after years of chasing a career and living a hectic city life, the pace of living on the water may seem a little too slow for some people.
If you're looking for activities to spice up your life a bit, start by putting a new spin on the tried and true. No doubt one of the reasons you invested in waterfront property was because you loved to walk on the beach or hike in nearby forest trails. Buy a hiking guide and commit to trying new hikes on areas near your property. For that matter, why not take the time to walk every inch of your property? Even if it only constitutes a very small piece of waterfront, try walking it with the idea to really look at what is in front of you. Not only will you get to know your property intimately, you might be amazed at some of the plant and wildlife you will find.
This may also spark an interest in being a more conscious environmental steward of your property. If the trees and vegetation on your property look more like something that belongs in the city than on the waterfront, consider replanting for a more natural look. The body of water that your property is located on will thank you, as it is much healthier for both water and land habitats.
Another thing you might want to do on foot is walk from your property to the closest town. Many waterfront properties are located near resort areas, and it can be a delight to spend time wandering a resort town. You'll find beautiful things to buy and delicious foods of all sorts to purchase. If your property is located on the ocean, you can walk on the beach and search for shells and agates along the way.
All this walking may stimulate an interest in the area you've chosen to live or vacation in. Perhaps it will ignite a passion to learn more about the natural history of the region, or the traditional history-what kind of people originally settled in the area near your property?
Once you've finished your hike, perhaps you will want to put your feet up on the deck overlooking the water and have a drink. The waterfront lifestyle allows you time to perfect your favorite drink, whether it is a Martini or a Manhattan. If you don't drink alcohol, you can create a tea ritual or try your hand at refreshing and healthful smoothies. Or, invest in an espresso machine and greet the sunrise with a specially brewed latte or cappuccino. With just a little thought and effort, you'll find more than enough things to do on your waterfront property.
