We chose the latter.
*EXCELLENT* point. Even though the Jendai is right in my backyard, I'm a good 45 minutes to an hour to the inlet. The problem was, I couldn't afford waterfront east of I-95 when I bought the house in 2007. Now, though...I'd seriously look at some of those houses as they're in the same price range I paid for my house!
