Here are what the neighbors’ back yards looked like:
One nice touch, which I haven’t seen elsewhere, was the ready availability of shopping carts. Many of the front yards in our neighborhood had grocery shopping carts parked right on their front gravel pads. That’s a nice feature when you want to spend the night under a bridge.
The biggest attraction of our house was the hot tub. Here we are celebrating its use with our good friend Jimmy.
