After we first looked at this house where we now reside, we went for a walk. We were wonderfully surprised to soon find ourselves in a park and by the river. What a great feature. Not long after we moved in, however, they started to dig and lay the infrastructure for a new subdivision. As you can see in the photo, it comes pretty darn near to the path. What a shame that they couldn't leave just a bit more room for nature and for us to enjoy it. It boggles the mind, but, then again, my mind is easily boggled.
