Time for a Sea Change!
In Australia we are familiar with term Seachange used to describe a move to the coast, a change in one’s home and lifestyle, usually for the better. A move that can see us doing more of the things we love to do on holidays, fishing, surfing , sunbathing watching the sea life, the dolphins play offshore in the ocean and maybe just enjoying fresh seafood more than once a week.
However Sea Change has a much deeper meaning too. According to Wikipedia, a Seachange “is a poetic or informal term meaning a gradual transformation in which the form is retained but the substance is replaced” . It’s an Expression of Shakespeare’s, taken from the song The Tempest, sung byAriel the airy spirit held in servitude by the magician Prospero...
"Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes,
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change,
into something rich and strange,
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell,
Hark! now I hear them, ding-dong, bell."
The form is the same but the substance is replaced. We remain the same on the outside , other than maybe a suntan , but inside a sea change brings a transformation. It’s good for the soul.
Looking for a sea change is a great reason to search for real estate on the coast. Waterfront, Ocean Views, Beachfront or just living in a seaside community, you will find the home of your dreams to start your sea change, easily on waterside property sales.
The rest of the transformation is up to you!
