Resting In The Redland

Live Oak in the RedlandSunday was a glorious day in the Redland. The air was crisp with the coming fall (at least for an hour or two it was LOL). The sun was shining. A gentle breeze was blowing. I sat on my porch late afternoon and took a snooze. Well, as much of a snooze as my two cats will let me take. The dogs were busy inside barking as well. It didn’t take a lot of effort on my part to ignore them =)
Days like that one make me glad I moved to the Redland. Selling real estate in Miami isnt terribly easy right now. But resting in the Redland is.

Lobster Claw in the RedlandI listened to the birds calling. I watched the palm trees swaying in the breeze. I saw the neighbors take their horses for a stroll. They rode them down the dirt road. At the main road they could at least see some cars pass by. I preferred the tranquility of my porch.

Apart from the horses and the neighbors I saw no one else. Our street, like most in the Redland, doesnt get a lot of traffic. Ours gets even less since its not paved. Not many want to encounter the wrath of the mud puddles of a dirt road after a rain.

I closed my eyes half-way and enjoyed the time I spent doing nothing. The next day Id be actively back at work. That afternoon I had been working. But that very moment I did nothing but sit on my porch and enjoy the Redland. I highly recommend it.

    Hi Maggie, Sounds like a great relaxing day! I love how Redland seems to be quiet with not a whole lot of traffic in the community. Great photos!

    Steph, that’s what I love about it here. It’s quiet, but we’re not far from things. I’m 12 minutes from the Turnpike and once I’m on that, anything goes!
