Annual golf/fishing trip...............
The only thing I'm going to miss about work is our annual golf/fishing trip in Destin, FL. Leaving tomorrow morning for fun n sun in the sand. Of course I can do this when I retire but I will have to pay for it then. Last year we struck gold as you can see in the below pic. I hope the scenery will be as nice this year. 8)

You are right - you can always go to the beach when you are retired. We just got back from Santa Barbara and San Diego, CA which have very nice beaches.
Believe it or not if I had nine figures in the bank I would move to Santa Barbara in a minute. Until then I think I'll rent a home there for a couple of weeks in the summer. Much cheaper.
You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
Even though the cost of living in Santa Barbara is high with the median home price now more than $1 million, you might be able to get by with a 8-figure portfolio. I wonder how do many of the poverty-wage workers manage to live there?
May we live in peace and harmony and be free from all human sufferings.
