Papa’s World – Day #27 Sheltering in place.

Walking a nature trail
all by ourselves!

Yesterday – we dicided to ride our bikes and then walk

a new Nature trail we discovered the other day.

Trail marker

We had found this by accident – a tunnel had been installed

In the new over 55 community being built one half mile away!

We were riding our bikes on the paved path

and just happened to glance over the bank and saw the entrance!

Rocks placed on the trail to cross the wet waterway!

We followed the path and went trough the tunnel and found

THREE nature trails varying in length

three miles being the longest!

Trail markers with picture
representing which trail
you are walking!

So , we parked the bikes and locked them up

and started walking through marsh lands and forests and watershed.

The markers were well displayed

It was well done with gravel – small crushed pavement

and mowed so we did not get our feet wet.

Markers along the trail

It was quiet and NO ONE was to be seen!

Sherry by the small Broad run creek!

This is called the Broad run water shed and eventually

ends up in the Potomac River!

A beautiful sometimes open walk

We walked in the forest and in fields!

Broad run creek

Walking – we received alerts on our phones

a rain storm was approaching

and we were about 2/3 the way through!

Along the way!

In addition to the makers and historical facts on signs

These what I think are entrances to storm drains

and they were hand painted – very cool!

Another storm drain!

The walk was through forests and marsh lands that had many

planted trees that had been protected with plastic tubes.

Walking the trail

We saw many signs of animal prints and tracks

Deer – fox and maybe dogs I think!

The trees planted
and protected by plastic
tubes!

The marsh was impressive as I had no idea it was there!

At the beginning of the 3 mile walk.

Needless to say – just as we finished it started to sprinkle.

We still had to bike almost two miles

in the rain.

On the way back – we got soaked

and Sherry had a accident and hit a curb with her knee

when she went down.

It ended up very painful – but we iced it

and today she is moving well.

We were afraid she had maybe cracked the knee cap.

Social distancing
while riding our bikes

She has been on our supplement of Juice Plus for 14 years

and building her immune system with nutrients

from Fruits – Vegetables and Berries

directly into her blood stream

Providing the recovery of physical things such as

her running the 10 mile cherry blossom race.

Her recovery from something like this that is not a break

is exceptional and myself also.

Papa’s World – over 55 community – reality

It started a little over a year ago –

there has long been rumors –

There would be a over 55 community built along the lake !

GOOD MORNING

The site work has been ongoing for the last 16 to 24 months –

Then – about a year ago – building started !

Walking through the woods

One of the trails we walk – was extended –

and now it took us directly to the new community

about one mile from our home.

Nearing the lake

We could watch from the trail the construction starting –

but we could not walk around the lake as our trail ended.

Then – they opened it up – with gravel – then black top !

Close to seeing the lake



The beginning of the lake –

The town houses already built

As we progressed along the path –

the new huge clubhouse comes into view

The club house

The club house has both a indoor and out door pools –

along with two pickle ball courts !

There are conference rooms – activity center –

and covered veranda’s

Fishing dock and indoor pool area

There are already several different houses built

There are single family homes –

Town houses – Condo’s and four story townhouses!

Viewing from chairs placed around the lake

Construction is everywhere –

and now we can walk around the entire lake

Adding miles to our already existing 15 miles of trails.

View before the dam

The new name is BIRCHWOOD – over 55 community –

Brambleton Va.

They will have their own HOA
