Your view: it's worth protecting
When Jim, my husband, retired and we moved to Florida 12 years ago, I was reluctant to leave the Northeast, where our four children and their families lived. We were leaving a large home with lovely views from every window upstairs and down, for a small home with no views at all. I remember thinking of a statement my mother had once made: “Be sure to protect your view!” I had always assumed she meant the view from our home, and I thought to myself, “Now I’ve done it. I wasn’t paying attention and lost my view!”
We did eventually create a charming view within our house, and then with landscaping and lighting created a lovely lush view on our patio. The pool, which we did not want when we were looking for a home, became the focal point of this space and also afforded lots of fun for our children and grandchildren when they came to visit.
