Driving around Rye at night, I once again feel the pull to this area. Itís on the mainland for one thing, which may be a strange way to look at it but Iíve lived on islands for the last twenty years. The traditional architecture with real attention to detail, the park-like settings, the roads that are anything but straight, it all calls to me. I am acutely aware, however, that had I found a job in the city, the housing prices here are nearly double those of the island, and that a reasonably comfortable home would be beyond our means.
