Sometimes we dream of the perfect clients and have even imagined an advertisement to find them:

Seeking perfect client: Are you creative, passionate about gardening, interested in unusual plants, in love with the beach? Do you like driftwood, rocks, grasses, curves, overflowing gardens? If so, you may be our dream client. Call...

Painter Phyllis and poet and psychotherapist Robert could have answered this ad. While not CPNs...yet!...they have been dream clients, allowing us to create a vision which we all shared.

Their son, Dean, wanted a temple for the smiling Buddha...so the driftwood temple came to be. St. Fiacre was added to make it ecumenical. Can anyone find us a dancing St. Francis to join him?

Sea Nest is the cosiest and most artfully decorated seaside cabin we have ever been in, and we highly recommend it for a getaway. It has a house diary, always a huge plus in Skyler's opinion. An oceanside muse visits those who stay at Sea Nest. Read their writings.
