When I was a kid, we lived in a little beach house right by the water.
We loved living in that little place and we had a great life there.
My dad was a fisherman and we were always doing something fun out on the beach or in the water. My brothers and I used to play outside all day long, and we never cared one bit about how hot the temperature would get during the summer. If it was too hot, we would just run and jump in the water for a while to cool off. The winter was a little bit different though because it got pretty cold around there with the breezes coming off of the water. In the winter, we used a wood burning stove for our heating system. We never had central heating or central air conditioning at all in our little house. The wood burning stove was enough to heat up the house and we all stayed warm and toasty during the winter. The central air conditioning was a different story though. I never even knew what central air conditioning was until I became an adult and moved away. We never really needed air conditioning at all, and the indoor air quality in our home was really great because we always had the windows open and the fresh ocean breezes were coming in through the windows all the time. It was a great way to grow up and now I really miss those days. I can’t think of a better way to spend childhood, that’s for sure.
