Enjoying my Tax Dollars!

Now on my walks I am enjoying my tax dollars at work. . .
These two busy streets I needed to cross in order to walk by the lake. Not always a safe proposition with morning traffic and cars careening around blind corners on their way to work with probably a coffee in one hand and a mascara wand or whatever in the other. I had to walk out of my way to a traffic light instead of the crosswalk. I started doing that after I caused a few skids and one accident while in the crosswalk with the lights blinking and the signs posted.








Well, the long ago promised walkway finally is finished! I don't have to cross these streets, the walk goes all the way now! This is the new beginning that follows the lake ( it used to end here, forcing me to cross)
Here we are on the new walkway! So much nicer, quieter, away from the street!
And, the best part, closer to the beautiful view!



Nice to enjoy my tax dollars!!

Oh I love the closer view of the water... and the walkway looks great. You are motivating me to get back out there!

Very nice. I love seeing my tax dollars at work. We have a recreation center here in Leesburg called "Ida Lee" (the same place Obama made his speech during the campaign. It includes a swimming pool, tennis courts and gym. Every time I work out in the gym, or Dorothy and I walk around the grounds, I feel good about paying my property taxes to the Town of Leesburg!

It's so beautiful! I wish we had a lake like that near our house! I would definitely take walks more often..
