I think this is the third in a series of why I am so lucky!
I live in the best neighbourhood one could hope to live in – and it was all an accident. Bad hips and knees forced me to looks for a place to live without lots of stairs. I fell in love with a semi-detached bungalow down the street from my former townhome and acquired with it, an entire lifestyle, great neighbours and new friends.
I live on a court. There are 50 semi-detached adult-lifestyle bungalows and just over 90 friendly and caring people. When weather is decent, and folks are no longer in winter hibernation, one can walk around the court in a few minutes…..or a few hours, depending on how often you stop to chat. Need help? There is no end to the offers ! Need a ride somewhere? Same thing. Need a recommended service provider? Somebody will know of a good one. Going away? There are many who will keep an eye on things, notice strangers hovering, feed the cats, etc. Feel like a party? Not a problem – and you don’t have to drive anywhere….although raucus behaviour does get noted!!
I can’t think of a better place to be at this stage in my life (retired and loving it!)! I am very lucky!!
