Papa’s World – we try to walk three miles every day – here we are walking Cameron Woods.

Here is our home as we head West and then North.
Sherry walking East and at the truck is where Diane lives.
After Diane joins us – we turn North and walk up the street.

The community center – pickleball courts and pool will be on our left at the top of the hill and our mailboxes will be on the right-hand side in a small cul-de-sac.

The unfinished Community Center building – slowly progressing – almost a year behind schedule!
What it is supposed to look like!

Inspections – material shortages – labor – One developer sold to another – numerous delays!

But when completed we can walk easily to it and it will be so nice –

the inside has been drywalled and painted in 80 % of the building –

the area to the right in the pictures has yet to be drywalled.

I have no idea why it was not done all the way through – but the drywall is sitting in there.

Inside are bathrooms – kitchen, meeting room, fireplace, workout area, lounging area, etc.

Behind us is the main road going north to the main gate.
Before the main gate in the upper right – we head to Waterway Woods – a cul-de-sac.
Here we will walk again West around a loop of this cul-de-sac.

The main entrance – gated – is to the right.

Walking a cul-de-sac – one of many that have no houses on them.
Now we have walked Waterway Woods cul-de-sac and are heading back toward the community center.
On the Waterway Cul-de-sac.

Once back on Waterway road – it is straight back to the house –

or you can choose to do five other cul-de-sacs – some with houses most are vacant.

Or walk the road to the pond – to the end of the cul-de-sac or go to the new construction area and walk.

If you choose to walk everything in Cameron Woods plus the garden homes –

it would be close to seven or eight miles!

SHERRY Betsie Diane – heading the last one half mile South on Waterway road, Cameron Woods Community!
PAPA’S WORLD

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

Hoping you enjoyed our new walk –

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – where we live

We moved to NVA in 1999 – June to be exact – transferring within the company –

both of us – taking our years – pension- 401 K – vacations and knowledge –

after 32 years for me and 20 plus years for Sherry.

GOOD MORNING

We bought two houses –

moved twice – in 6 1/2 years in Fairfax Va.

Then – we found our home – in Brambleton Va. almost thirteen years ago.

Our new library in the town center

We moved into our home – in August – 2006 –

and have watched our little community grow and grow.

They actually built a new town called Brambleton –

and now are finishing the THIRD High School set to open in September!

Main street – Brambleton Va.

Watching all of this – being a part of it – is amazing !

We are a community that sits in the middle of the country –

once you arrive home –

you do not have to go back out into the crazy traffic of NVA.

And in two years or less – the METRO – Silver line – will be 3 1/2 miles away !

The construction of SEVEN more stops is 80 % done –

and will open a brand new line here !

We can hop on – go into D.C. or right to the airports –

everything will be connected !

View of half of Brambleton Town center

New four story town homes just completed –

and recently we have been walking the new trails around a huge lake – man made –

Of the new –

OVER 55 community being built just a half mile from our house.

That community is going to have it’s own retail center along with it’s own HOA !

OUR NEW COUNTY LIBRARY

The new four story library just opened a few months ago –

with a huge teen section where you see the windows on the second floor!

HANSON RECREATION PARK

Yesterday – it was announced that what is known as HANSON FARM –

Has been turned over to the county –

and next month – development will start on a 257 ACRE preserve !

Soccer fields ( grass)10 of them – 2 pro turf fields –

4 ball diamonds – 1 cricket field – multiple tennis and basketball courts.

FIVE LAKES – pavilion’s -picnic areas and tables and grills.

A park lodge – rest rooms – and the list goes on –

all to be completed in two years.

The farm house and outbuildings will be preserved as a historic site.

Tom and Sherry

This is but a glimpse of where we choose to live 13 years ago.

In the end of the development –

there will be an additional 5 to 10 miles of trails to the already 15 miles we have now.

We were very fortunate – we love our home –

(not the cold Winter )

Our roots are now here for the time being.

I hope this provides a look into the Country living in NVA!

Just another day in my life !

GOOD NIGHT
