Mariner’s Reach … WOW … that is the only word to describe the properties. Yesterday it was extremely bad weather, today still not great, but at least you can see the property and the beautiful views. It is still a bit misty, so we can only see a few Km’s out, but that is already enough to experience what it would be like with perfect weather.
Again I am welcomed by John and Shelley, and it already feels like I know them a long time. As written they are the owners of this huge property (120 acres), with several big lots available. And they are really big, from 10 to 15 acres (that is 4 to 6 Hectares). We first took the 4 wheel drive to get to the last lot and from there to the first, but you only start experiencing it when you are walking the lots itself. We started at lot one, with by far the longest oceanfront, almost 1.500 feet, or close to 500 meters! The lot has it all, a beach, wetland with many species of animals, many birds and to add a very nice cliff.
From there we walked to their own lot, with a very nice private beach and great scenic views again.
As there are no paths yet, it is also a good exercise, and it is getting warmer, so there are some bugs, but not alarmingly many yet.
As we get to lots 7 and 8 it gets even more spectacular, here you can see the huge drop from the cliffs as lower tide is approaching, scary but beautiful.
And yes I was there :-).
We ended the exercise by returning to the driveway, a long 750 feet (250 meters) tough walk through the very wet woods. At the house, as the shoes and socks were soaking wet, barefoot having a perfect smoked salmon and a glass of white wine. What a visit, what a property, definitively worth coming back.
Thanks John and Shelly for the wonderful hospitality, was great to hear “would be great to have you as our neighbor”.
