Loving Lake Anna...once again. I don't know if I ever thought, 20 years ago when we moved down here, that I would love Lake Anna as much as I do. For a perso that had never spent more than eight years in one home it amazes me that I have had such a sense of contentment being in one place for so long. Having lived in nine states, Washington D.C, plus Puerto Rico, Italy and Somalia I've always thought that moving was an adventure.
Yet, now I never seem to tire of driving in the countryside that surrounds Lake Anna. Crossing the numerous bridges that span the lake in various locations I never cease to soak in the sights. Although we do not have any permanent traffic lights here for well over a year now we have had a temporary light on the main bridge across the lake. Going from west to east sometimes results in a wait on the bridge for a green light. This time never bores me. I soak up the sights. Sometimes that means just looking at nothing but water and the shorelines. That's fine with me.
Other times it means I see somethings that moves me to pick up my camera which is often on the passenger seat. That's exactly what I did one day recently.
This is precisely why I do not mind when I see a red as I approach the traffic light. Instead I enjoy myself even more. It gives me a lot of satisfaction to take even one more photo that captures Lake Anna life. Sometimes I wonder if I ever will become jaded and take these things for granted. I hope not. In fact I doubt it very much.
Perhaps you will feel the same way if you have the opportunity to live here. If you would like to explore that possibility I would love to help you. Simply contact me and we will get started.
