Both farming and fishing provide for many a productive and satisfying way of life.

Writing for the Telegraph, Caroline McGhie describes the seductive benefits of the English farmhouse: “Not only are these houses rooted in some of the best landscape but they are also proving to be fruitful economic assets in uncertain times.”

Horestone farmhouse, now for sale, has gardens, roses, a pond, stands of trees and open fields.

And then there’s the Great Boat Corral and Seafood Festival, a huge sale of fishing boats, yachts and equipment – like this one in West Palm Beach – another place to go and dream.

Henry David Thoreau noted in Walden: “I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he had imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”

And farming and fishing both are both known for spurring people on to live the lives we can imagine.
