I have been whinning about moving and been exceptionally tired. This is not where I wanted to move. I was hoping to move to a house in the country, not an apartment. I love the outdoors, so I wanted to live in the country not the city. But with the economy the way that it is and my husband and I among the under-employed, my dreams were the first to go. So, an apartment it is.
The manager of this complex told us there was a "path" down by the creek. We were not lucky enough to get a creekside unit, and I had never seen the path. We've been too busy to investigate. So, when we finally got time, this is what we found:
I had envisioned a little dirt path snaking along the creek, but what we found was such a surprise, as you can see! (You can see some of the apartments, in the upper right.) My grandson enjoys it for feeding the ducks and birdwatching.
At the end of the "path" is a "park" with a picnic table. All of this is for the residents and guests.
Well, the apartment and it's wonderful amenity of a private creekside park where we can feed the ducks, stroll, and have a peaceful gaze at the squirrels, woodpeckers and Canadian Geese is the greatest surprise of all! We have been so blessed!
