Down the Road

Our new neighborhood, where we'll be moving to when our log house renovation is farther along, is just 3 miles down the road from where we now live.

It feels like the country. And, there are lots more pests:

Among the many pests we encounter are mosquitoes and tics, poison ivy and bamboo (all are much more plentiful than usual this year, due to heavy rains). Fortunately, this is one pest that isn't present:

What a great sign! Gives me a chuckle. Besides the lack of rattlesnakes, other advantages to the Southhampton neighborhood: access to the James River (canoeing and kayaking), good areas for walking and biking, and the best neighbors ever.
