The Falls

Isobela invited me to see her waterfall today. She led me over a bridge and through a small cave to a beautiful beach on a peaceful bay, and then I looked to my right. From mountain heights a beautiful waterfall was flowing right next to a stream of lava from a volcano! The lava and water vapor made for an almost constant rainbow. It is simply incredible. There is a small thatch overhang on the beach with two chairs in it for us, and across the way we can see the neighbor's gazebo on a hilltop. She has created a wonderful retreat.


We were blessed to have such a wonderful retreat because there were horrid traffic problems all over the place. We couldn't go anywhere that our feet couldn't take us. I tried a chopper but it locked up after a minute and auto-rotated to the ground. So we got dressed up and headed over the the Savoy.

The view is very nice from the deck of the Savoy now; the new Moxie store has some fantastic landscaping. Moxie Island is coming along well, I hope they'll be open for business soon. It seems almost everyone is building things nowadays. Well almost everyone; two prominent families had to resort to buying manufactured homes. We still love them, even so.

Hahahahahahaha :) MacKenzie went shopping for houses so I am indulging her for now on the prefab, but I am already plotting a proper custom built residence :)

Regardless, when the property values go down, you'll know who to blame ;)

Prefab is perfectly lovely :P

For me, the fun is still in the decorating. We need to do a tour of homes or something for those who wish to participate so everyone can have a look at everyone else's digs. Our estate now has three houses up on it: my cottage on my 512, his house on his tract, and our house on the remainder of the property.

Okay, four if you count the tree house. We're weird... what can I say?

Sign us up for a house tour! It can be like one of those New Orleans walking tours where you have a different drink at each stop ;)
