Mobile Home Living ... Retirement Style

What's it like to live in a Mobile Home
and in a Mobile Home Park?

Pretty much, just like anywhere else you live.

When we retired eight years ago, we lived in a community that was primarily Seniors ... just like we are.
That all changed about four years ago when we were uprooted along with
200 + families because the property was sold to a developer. 
I talked about it here.

We were heartbroken! 


The Lord led us here.

I remember telling Him ... "this isn't where I want to live", bottom lip out and everything.

His reply ... "stop complaining and thank me, I'm going to bless you there".

 And He has,
in ways too numerous to mention.

Nothing fancy ... homes in a row ... dotted with trees here and there.

It's well-maintained, for the most part,
- neighbors are friendly and quiet
- a bit of ground to tend and
- enough space to have some privacy.

Whoever lived in this space before, had planted crepe myrtle trees
in all the right places, and the plants we moved with us have
begun to mature ... it's starting to feel like HOME.

Buzz ... always a good sport.

We might have purchased acreage but at this time in our lives,
we opted for the freedom to travel if we want to ...
or spend LOTS of quiet days at home.  

This lifestyle isn't for everyone, but it suits us perfectly.
Just the right size ... just the right price.

Just like the sign says ... "this is our happy place"!
