How to use coast in a sentence?

  1. Michael Shaps:

    I always prefer to take a little bit of the harder way, the East Coast was closer to what I experienced in France.

  2. Julie Gibson:

    What you can see just over here is the front door of the broch, exposed by the sea, taking away parts of the ruins and leaving a built wall still intact. And each year a little more falls as the sea batters it, what we have discovered in recent years, through the use of geophysics and other things, is that... on this stretch of the coastline, all the settlement archaeology is within 100 meters of the coast edge. And so as the sea takes this heritage of ours away it's taking all that we have.

  3. Evan Myers:

  4. John Ruge:

    It is awesome to see Dominique back home in the care of her family, it is the perfect ending to her journey to the United States. It is also a great beginning for her new life in the Ivory Coast. I'm so proud of our surgical team and the impact we have had on little Dominique's life. It is why we do what we do every day.

    The history on this property is immense. Founded in 1885, we have 40 buildings on the national register, we've built a dozen state of the art sound stages, we've got a dozen practical shooting locations. So what Tyler has built here is the only major motion picture studio on the East coast.
