I’ve been thinking about it for years… this notion that I have, that my husband and I should shake off the dreary suburbs, lose the never-ending chore list of the big house and extricate ourselves once and for all from the tyranny of an acre and a half of land. We want to live by the sea. It should be small; a small house and a small yard, located in a sweet little village on the ocean. But where? East Coast? West Coast? Where?

Along comes Stephen Brewer with a lavishly illustrated list of patently pleasant possibilities. One hundred and one, to be exact. From the extreme Northeast location of Eastport Maine to the extreme Southwest haven of La Jolla California. The discovery process promises to be sublime.
