Beaches and water are always great, but you also have resources of your own. A nice secluded cabin with a gorgeous mountain view also has its pluses.
I live in Huntington. Far enough away from the best parts of WV (well, it's a short drive, really) and since it's a collage town, I get to listen to people that come from other parts of the country talk about 'how great it is' where they come from.
Don't get me wrong, my boyfriends father has a nice little 'shack' up on a ridge that looks down on everything, and I love staying there when the chance comes up, but there's nothing like sand between your toes, laying out on the beach with sunblock 900000000 on (I'm very fair skinned, for a WOP lol) staring at all the guys and girls in their 'almost not there' bathing suits. It's hot as sin here and a dip in the pool is nice, but a nice beach would be better right now.
We were supposed to go for the 4th weekend (I have family in Wildwood NJ, REALLY nice there and the best pizza in the world is at Sam's on the boardwalk
), but some crap came up and it didn't happen.
To get back to topic so I'm not just wasting space on the servers...
What kind of finish(es) are you planning on for the body(s)?
