    we had friends who bought a house in Seagrove two or three blocks inland from 30a between seagrove market and where seaside is now. we also occasionally stayed at the old seagrove villas motel. i was around 10-12 at the time so details are sketchy. i can remember riding our bikes to get cokes and candy at the store in seagrove. we would play in the woods where seaside is now. you could ride your bike down 30a and fish on the little bridges over western lake. even in the middle of summer there would be very little traffic. i wish i had been a little older to have truly appreciated it for how it was then. i love it now but it was something else back then

    We bought a house over there too, right by Cessna Park that we are renting out. The area is looking really good lately... Also can't wait to move there soon!
