One of the best things about being retired is having the time to do the things you want to do, as opposed to things they say you should do...save the world, climb the Himalayas, give back, spoil your grandkids, or become an activist.
We live out in the county in a small subdivision with all the homes on large lots or acreage, and cutting down trees is forbidden. So though the Homeowner's Association came be like yard Nazis at times, it does make for a beautiful place to live.
And one of the things we do do every day is walk and our daily walk takes us down to a small bridge that crosses the lagoon. We always stop there, look for turtles, check the trees to see if they've started blooming and in summer look for the resident alligator.
Nice way to start the day.
