Elk Run and Ex Boardman Pond

This morning Beccy took us to see this condo at 12046 Elk Run in Cedar Creek Commons.

 It is a beautiful, well-maintained, spacious home, with a beautifully finished basement.  It's an end unit in a lovely, woodsy setting.  It has a very nice deck, and a big two car garage.  I think if we looked forever, we could never find another condo better than this one.  It's in a great location, and is in a wonderful setting.

Sadly again, though, I am the only member of the family who is over the moon for this condo.  It seems we will continue to turn down whatever is available, even if it meets our requirements and is affordable. 

I'm beginning to think that this isn't the right year to try to downsize.  I'm kind of just giving up on the whole process - dealing with a ton of negativity.  I'll  step back and Dick can decide whether or not to see another condo.

 I'm deflated.


In the afternoon, they all went kayaking.  Starting at Scheck's Place, they paddled through the new river route where Boardman Pond used to be.  It took them approximately 2 1/2 hours to get to our place.

They all had a super time, and the weather was perfect.  They saw 2 huge, huge turtles and a duck - that was it!
