A recent article from The Wall Street Journal titled, “Keep the Beach—These Homeowners Are Trying Lagoons on for Size” focuses on waterfront living and highlights Eric and Pam Greenfield. The Greenfields are a couple who purchased a second home in Watersound, Florida on Camp Creek Lake. Camp Creek Lake is located in Watersound Beach and serves as a spectacular location for paddle boarding, kayaking and fishing. The article defines Camp Creek Lake as “one of Florida’s coastal dune lakes, which belong to a rare group of waterbodies called ‘intermittently closed and open lakes and lagoons’ because they sometimes connect to the sea.”
The article states that, “Mr. Greenfield, 44, uses the dune lake to fish with daughters Riley, 15, Jayden, 13, and son Jake, 11, but he and Ms. Greenfield, 44, bought the house for its view.” This dazzling lake ideally sits right along the gulf coast allowing you to enjoy the freshwater as well as the saltwater. There is not much more you could ask for when searching for the perfect location for your home or second home.
Descriptions from Mr. Greenfield paint the perfect picture of a morning on Camp Creek Lake. The article says that he “sends the day’s first emails over morning coffee, he overlooks the quiet water with a thin strip of dunes behind it and the Gulf of Mexico in the distance.” Camp Creek Lake is full of adventures and relaxation. Mr. Greenfield said he “fell in love with the area’s topography, which includes parklands full of wildlife and a brackish tidal creek that runs to the beach. While the Gulf is a short walk away, Mr. Greenfield said, it is cooler and windier than on Camp Creek Lake.”
