It only took 4 months!!!

This morning the Maintenance Department here in Shell Point installed our long awaited Chandelier!!!  Really friends, how long did you think it would take me to have  a Chandelier?  (4 months)

Found a great location in our Retirement  "Pied-a-Terre"!!!!   That's all I needed, a location and the right fixture ..........and off I was.




MC and I are truly enjoying our new "life".  Only regret....We should have done it sooner!  A LOT SOONER!!
We both have found lots to do to stay busy.
We love Shell Point and all it's beauty and all that it has to offer.   The best part WE HAVE PEACE OF MIND!!!

ENJOY

Shell Point--Our New Life!

MC and I are settled into our new apartment.  We  now enjoy strolling around  our "neighborhood" after dinner.
I am amazed at the beauty that surrounds us at Shell Point!
MC has been taking pictures and I wish to share what he has captured!

To begin, Shell Point, covers  about 800 acres.  There is so much here and every day we find somewhere new to explore!

Shell Point is composed of four different "Neighborhoods".   We live on The Island.  The other three are The Woodlands, Eagles Preserve, and the newest, The Estuary.  Each one has it's own personality.

 Overview of the Island


The Caloosahatchee River to the North and man-made channels to the West and South









THE MAIN GATE IS THE ENTRANCE TO THE ISLAND


THE WELCOME CENTER IS TO THE RIGHT OF THE GATE...
THIS IS WHERE OUR 'NEW LIFE' BEGAN  

The Island was the first Shell Point neighborhood  built  in the 1960's.  It has the majority of the activities .....the CENTER for the residents lives!!!....

A new Club House is under construction at the Golf Course, and is estimated to be completed in October.  It will house, among other things, two new restaurants and a fabulous spa and salon!


I hope I have given you a glimpse of our new life here in Shell Point.  Our 700 sq.ft.apartment is just a small part of the big, wonderful world we now live in.
