Russ,

Looks like you got allot of good suggestions already, here my suggestion.

I lived in NJ (Point Pleasant, and then Forked River on Barnegat Bay) all of my life up until spring 2002. Since then I have lived in Port Charlotte, just south of Englewood and North Port, and just north of Punta Gorda, all nice places to live in. This area is about 1/2 way between Ft Myers and Sarasota. Beautiful gulf beaches, Charlotte Harbor (a huge bay), nice barrier islands, great boating, some protected from wind and surf, some wide open, great gulf access. If you want nightlife and party action, do not come here. If you want a nice community to raise your family in, to work in and to play in, this is it. Off water individual family homes, reasonable for paradise. Canal waterfront with salt water, and dock behind your house, not cheap, but not crazy. Check out local real estate sites to get a feel for house sizes and prices. Many pics of my river front place, and various local marine life, and boat trips at my racing web site. Just go to my video gallery or photo gallery.

Hey Bowtie,

Where is your house in Hudson? I live in Sea Pines. We'll have to hook up @ Mikes Dockside for some cocktails.

I have a beautiful wooded lot in Bonita springs that is almost an acre that is just a mile from the beach and a mile and a half from a great ramp that is only five minutes to the Gulf .I was going to build my dream house on it but now it has to go.
