We just moved. I’m in a new neighborhood, a new town, same state – thank God (for Gov. DeSantis). It’s a 55+ community because me, my husband and our cat are over 55. He picked the community – when we cashed out in spades selling our old house, and our real estate agent told us about our current town. We like it here, but it’s been less than two weeks. There’s construction – because half the country is moving to Florida – and older folks.
I have nothing against grey hair and golf carts. Personally, I like Ultress and Preference by L’Oréal – it does wonders, but that’s just me. The next-door neighbor brought us a triple chocolate cake. He has brown hair and two adorable pooches. They gave us a snapshot of the nearby neighbors and I was impressed.
They seem to jump in and do projects – scarfing up free lumber from the dumpsters and building things as needed, including a ramp for a disabled neighbor and insulating garages from the Florida heat. Older people know how to build things and how to budget. They bike, kayak, walk, and hike, we noticed. The amenities center had a lively water volleyball game taking place when I visited, an outdoor painting class, and bocce ball and tennis games in action.
