The glamorous job of "life- guard" was a popular summer job for many college age young men. They would move to the beach for 4-6 months, live in cramped accommodations' and head to the office  at Ed's Beach Service at 6 a.m. for check in.

In the aftermath of the 2008 housing crisis, many luxury homeowners in the 30A area found themselves with a tough decision.  Even if they had reason to move on, they had to weigh whether it would be wiser to delay until a market rebound brought prices back to reasonable levels.

The recovery has progressed for a while, buyers have returned, and prices continue upward — including those for Santa Rosa Beach, Watercolor, Aly’s Beach, Seaside and Rosemary luxury homes. If you are one of those who have been thinking about selling their own upscale property, you may have concluded that this fall it’s finally time to act. If so, it’s worth remembering that yours is a specialized market segment.

The 30A area has earned another international accolade with it's inclusion in Huffington Post's "10 Most Relaxing Coastal Drives in the US and Canada".  Those of us that live in this area find it no surprise that 30A was included.  The problem is, however,  that now that the world knows about it, is may not stay that way.  Traffic in Destin and further west on Highway 98 is in my mind, horrendous, but pull off on 30A and drive along its two lane roads with quaint homes, restaurants, bike paths and dune lakes and your mind drifts away to time spent at the beach when your were 8 or 9 and your family spent time in a rented beach cottage with hardwood floors, a screened in sleeping porch and ham sandwhiches and watermelon.
