Recently, Jack and I had the opportunity to drive across the state of FL and visit dear old friends in Naples. The weather has been very unusual – cold and wet, not at all the beautiful warm weather FL is known for.
Driving across Alligator Alley is always an adventure. We were driving over 70 miles an hour looking for alligators. We looked everywhere, trying to find at least one alligator. Of course we did not succeed.
Naples is a beautiful city, full of culture and a haven for foodies. We love road trips. This one met every requirement. We had a lovely time, never missing a meal, walking, exercising, shopping, laughing, talking, taking terrific naps and spending time with good friends.
As the weekend came to a close, we packed our car and started our trip back home. Fortunately, the weather cooperated most of the time. We love road trips but there is nothing like going home.
Brittany Lakes has been our home close to 6 years. Driving up to the security gate puts a smile on our faces every time. We are home!
Our community has a small but active board of directors. They take care of our greenery, roofs, trees, driveways and many other issues. Best of all, nobody has to shovel snow.
At the last HOA meeting, I learned that several board members plan on leaving the board this year. Allow me, on behalf of our residents, to thank them for their hard work on behalf of our community.
One of the pleasures of coming home is reconnecting with our neighbors and friends, including Joan and Max Weiss, who have lived in and owned their home in Aberdeen since Mar. 2009. As with many of us, they were snowbirds till Mar. 2013. Theirs is a sweet love story. They met as teenagers in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, (NY), got married in 1956, and left their beloved Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, for the suburbs of NJ. Their family grew with the addition of 3 children and 7 grandchildren. The family loves spending time together. Joan and Max also enjoyed their professional lives. She as a controller for a real estate firm and Max has been the owner of a mechanical contracting business for over 25 years.
Max and Joan enjoy their home, the wonderful lifestyle, great weather and the friends they have made since becoming a part of the Aberdeen community. The next time you are walking on Brittany Lakes Drive please say “hello” to them.
How fortunate are we to come back to a wonderful place we can call home?
