Those houses look perilously close to the edge. How did you get this image, Tash?

Is PV on erosional shoreline? Those buildings look mighty close to the edge.

interesting how the two lots to the left appear mapped out for development that didn't happen (or did it?)

Neutra? I had no idea...very cool

The 1st photo was taken from a small plane - last year's Mother's Day flight with my student pilot son and his instructor.
