My Summer Favorites and More! (2)

Isn’t summer great?!  I must say that some of my fondest childhood memories are during the summer time!   Maybe because school was out, the weather was warm, lots of family gatherings and outdoor activities – like the yearly Italian Feasts my elementary school always held – good old Our Lady of Victory in Mt. Vernon, NY.  Going to Tibbitts Brook Pool in Yonkers, NY and to Glen Island Beach in New Rochelle, NY.   And, one of my most FAVORITE memories is going to the movies to watch JAWS.  I was 10 years old and that movie STILL sends chills up my spine!  I LOVE the summer!                                                                         

Please … Adults Only …

Friends on the Road in Real Estate

     As many of you know, I am a Realtor in New York and Connecticut.  Within those 2 states, I cover 5 counties – Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties in NY and Fairfield and parts of Litchfield counties in CT.  That is ALOT of driving!

Along the way, I have seen many interesting places and have met some new friends – critter friends – some small and some … not so small!

  Adorable pup in Carmel, NY – at first, he came out of his home barking up a storm, then allowed me to step out of the car to view his property.

A very brave Chipmunk who allowed me to snap a few photos. 

   Stopped to say “Hello” to these fellows after a  very exciting viewing of the home of an Oscar winning actor in Patterson, NY!

I didn’t get out of the car for this photo!  

  Many, many ponds, lakes, streams and reservoirs through out all 5 counties full of fish, turtles, frogs, ducks, geese, swans, ….

 Two Doves who kept getting closer and closer to me.

If your thinking of purchasing a home and moving here, just think – when the kids ask for a pet, just take them for a ride – there is so much to see!

WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?
