      The photo you used on your Facebook page was a picture of “Sweetwater” at Sandbridge Beach (managed by Siebert Realty). Sandbridge is a beautiful, non-commercial family beach, much like the Outer Banks. If families are interested in this area, you can visit Siebert Realty’s website to search over 375 beach homes and condos in this area, which is only 20 mins. south of the Va. Beach resort area. See you at the beach! http://bit.ly/IbK0BG

          Thanks Casey. I just wanted to mention this because you used Sandbridge on your Facebook Page to lead into your blog, but there was no mention of it in the article. It’s a gorgeous area, as you can see. We would love it if you could do a spread about Sandbridge! Your readers would not for disappointed! See you at the beach!

          Thanks so much,
