We live on a lot that is just under an acre. We are surrounded on both sides by wonderful neighbors and across the street by another wonderful neighbor. He live in a development called Covington Chase, a grouping of thirty-seven houses with 3/4 acre lots. We purchased one of the bigger lots that is bordered by a farm field in the back and our aforementioned fantastic neighbors on either side. I purposely was looking for a lot that did not border houses in the back. Bill and I need that privacy in back of our house.

We moved here in November of 2006. We had the house built from scratch. We are the only ones who have lived in this house. We also built out house in Pennsylvania from scratch, on a 6.875 lot. We couldn't quite afford a "lot" that big here in Washington D.C.'s summertime capital, AKA "Gayberry" because of the large lesbian and gay man couple population. Lots of us Old Gays down here folks.
So enjoy the tour while I go and take a shower. It's hot and humid this morning, a typical August day here on the Delmarva peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Chesapeake bay on the left. We may be uncomfortable sometimes in these temperatures folks but the vegetation and flowers love it! We do too. Bill often sits on the back deck and just soaks in the colors and sounds of our wonderful, living back yard.
