Sometimes, the neighbourhood dogs will bark for no apparent reason - just to be heard? Ear plugs for light sleepers could/should be on my list along with linens and bath towels ;-). There are a few restaurants close by [5 minutes], but nothing too fancy - local food and take-out shops. There is Elaine's, up the hill with a good menu and wine list, but it is wise to call ahead. And yes, "Luna Sea" is about 15 minutes west for dining delights provided by our Navalee's chef husband. You can't have too many good cooks ;-). Thank you Kelsy and do come back some time!
