30 Nov The land by the beach
I think it was last year that Nanny and Poppy sold their share of this tract of land by the Marina — it can’t be more than 500 feet from the beach — to Uncle Angelo and his family.
The developer, Mario Pirelli, who was looking to build Uncle Bruno an apartment on the main road to the town, says all of the apartments have been sold.
It was the land piece of property we owned in Sant’Andrea, though Uncle Bruno says he might try to buy something soon, perhaps even Nino’s summer place down the Marina that he hasn’t used in more than a year.
While the property Poppy sold is in a great location by the beach, that’s also the bad thing about it. Since it lies under sea level, if a big storm came, it’s easy to see how it could get flooded.
And wouldn’t that be horrible…
