The last time my husband and I went to the beach it was for a long weekend. We were celebrating our fifteenth anniversary and we decided to stay in one of those charming bed and breakfast inns right on the edge of the ocean. It was a beautiful, old romantic place with a giant wraparound porch so you could see the view from any angle on the porch. We were a little bit concerned when we first walked into the lobby downstairs because the temperature outside was really hot that weekend and the lobby didn’t feel very cool to us. As a matter of fact, it didn’t feel much like the proprietors had the air conditioning system running at all inside the B&B. I was a little bit nervous because I am one of those people who just can’t live without air conditioning. My husband knows this about me – and he also knows that I get really crabby and in a terrible mood when I’m too hot. So he immediately asked the owner of the B&B if the inn had air conditioning. I think he was going to cancel our reservations if the owner had said no! But the owner just laughed and told us that he and his wife had installed zone control heating and air conditioning in the place the year before because his wife was cold all the time and their guests had been complaining about the lack of air conditioning. He assured us that the air conditioning worked just fine up in the guest quarters upstairs, and boy, were we relieved to hear that!
