Ponte Vedra Beach

Living on vacation

It seems there should be common name for the people who live full time where other people go on vacation. I mean, other than “lucky,” or “locals.”

We call it “living on vacation” at our house in Ponte Vedra Beach in northeast Florida, just south of Jacksonville. Home of fancy resorts, golf courses, The Players Championship, and the PGA headquarters, Ponte Vedra Beach is full of manicured lawns, sandy toes, and enough beach vibe to balance out an otherwise conservative county club feel.


Let’s go surfin’ now.

These guys are learning how.

We’ve put the kids in a couple of different surf programs. The first, Saltwater Cowgirls.

More recently, they’ve spent a week at East Coast Boarding School, a 9-noon surf camp.
