2011 was a BIG year for me. A couple of months after I retired from teaching 30 years, I moved into my new house in the next town over after working on it for over a year. Then I took my first retirement trip to the beach in September. I'd always wanted to go on vacation after school started so I wouldn't have to compete with all the school kids and teachers' families out on the road. I was surprised to find that rates didn't go down much during the 3rd week of September. I really enjoy sitting on the creek in my backyard sometimes with my computer, magazines or newspapers or sometimes with my camera or sometimes just me.

|I chose this house because this was in the backyard. Not in the 100 yr. flood plain nor is it hard to get to.|
