    We have our « pied a terre » en France for 20 years. 10 years ago we sold the apartment and we purchased a holiday house in St Jean de l’ Esterel, close to Cannes, all the family spend a few summer weeks over there

    Up until recently, my wife and I had a beautiful winter home in Arizona. The pandemic made travel back and forth very difficult so we sold. Once the virus is under control we’ll probably be buying again.

    Boynton Beach. A couple hours south east of you. Think we'll sell the condo in Aruba.

    Need to get some gear for this place.

    Not sure whether it’s because both grandfathers were sailors. One a Commodore in the Navy, the other a seafarer in the merchant fleet traveling the seven seas. But I need water to relax.

    Re: Second Homes

    My second home is in France, or the Netherlands, or Belgium, or Germany, or anywhere else connected by water.

    It floats and moves from one picturesque lake, or river, or city, or village to the next as often as I wish.

    Beautiful residence in a beautiful place. My wife and I have spent a lot of time on Eagle Beach and we love it. My favorite activity is swimming along the boundary rope. With the tide of course.

    We're buying in Boynton Beach FL. Going to sell the Aruba condo. It's my favorite place on earth, but a pain in the ass to get to. Also with kids leaving home, and I'd assume starting families of their own, FL is a easier destination. .. actually going to make FL my primary residence MN will be my second home. 183 days in FL to stop paying the ridiculous taxes MN has.

    Sounds like a solid plan. Hard giving up such a beautiful place though.
