My house is one of six in the neighborhood that is close to a watershed and just a walk away from the lake. It is like having a park right outside our door. I was born in a city of townhouses (row houses) and I can definitely say I am not a city girl any more. I love my neighborhood. My hubby and I and our dog are always taking walks on the fireroads around the reservoir.
My goldie loves swimming in the lake.
On the lower side of the lake is a dam and the state park.
Another great thing about my house and neighborhood is the birds. I get to see some great birds.
The woodpeckers are one of my favorites, I see the Redbellied woodpeckers, Pileated, Downy, Hairy Woodpecekers, Northern Flickers, and the Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers. A few times I have seen Bald Eagles fly over my house and sometimes I see them in the trees near the lake. The deer are always nearby, once in my yard eating birdseed. Hunting season started recently so the hunters are parked up and down the street. We have to be careful walking in the woods now.
