I took a few days off recently to meet a friend in Florida. Our mission was to find a rental/vacation home for her in a town we would enjoy. As we drove around Florida (480 miles in 4 1/2 days), I realized we were looking for Nevada County on the beach. She didn’t know it, but I did. We wanted a friendly town with a great sense of community, rich in the arts and other cultural possibilities…. on the beach. I was happy for the time away and managed to squeeze in a little fun as well, but when it was time to leave I was happy to be heading back to Grass Valley. Except for the sand between our toes, we have it all.
