When I was moaning the other day about the work being done outside our place, I was giving in to a temporary annoyance because I wanted all the dust gone from the house while my sister Mary is with us this weekend.
What I didn't say was how pleased we are that we're going to be living right next to the National Fallen Firefighters' Memorial Park. We are surrounded by greenspace and water, and the park is going to just add to the pleasure we take in our surroundings.
Having said that, here are some views:
And this, this is the construction office, at which I could, but don't, throw stones.
When the park is finished, in 2012, it will look like this. Our building will be on the right of the photo, and I imagine I will often walk over there with my coffee in the morning. The spring and summer mornings. In the interim, I am going to enjoy our other views and stop kvetching.
