Happy New Year to you!

I love to reflect on the past, especially when we enter a New Year. In doing so, I decided to go through a box of old family photos.  I came across some wonderful photos of my grandmother, dating back to 1931. 

It gave me such a warm feeling and brought a smile to my face. I wanted to share this feeling. So...I have changed the look of The Coastal View to a vintage boardwalk style. I hope you enjoy it. It is different, just as the past is different for our present and I hope it brings a little joy to your day as well.

I often wonder, when I admire vintage photos and antique treasures, when our era becomes "vintage" will those that are yet to be, admire us as much? I like to think so.

Happy New Year to each of you and welcome 2011.
