Being active and social
From bowling, tennis, and golf to movie nights, choir, and swimming – Rick and Ann now thoroughly enjoy living just moments from such a large range of activities and facilities, and Ann makes mention of all the new friends that they’ve made as a result:
“Monday morning, one of the ladies invites other people to come and do aerobics with her in the water. There’s no charge, and it’s really good exercise. I’ll go with her, and then drag Rick along through the week.”
Rick jokes that he’s not brave enough to enter the water “with all the ladies” on a Monday morning, but he enjoys going with Ann later in the week.
“I usually go two or three times a week, and I really enjoy that.”
They also enjoy going to choir together and catching up with new and old friends during movie nights.
And, as an added bonus, Rick still gets to enjoy his time on the tools:
“They’ve got two brilliant workshops here, and I do enjoy them. I don’t need all my own tools – everything’s here. I’ve never welded in my life, but there are a couple of people here that are going to teach me, which I’m looking forward to.”
