Someone at the shower yesterday asked me if I was worried about living in here. It's a wonderful neighborhood, but we are pretty far pushed back off the beaten path, so to speak. you can't see the neighborhood from the main road at all. And with it just starting to get established, I guess maybe they were perhaps worried about crime being easy back here maybe? And since I know a few people who are building and others who are considering building in here read this, I thought I would tell you my answer.
I told her NO. We have police come and patrol regularly. I have seen them a few times. I hadn't seen them in a little bit though, but then again, I'm not out front looking for them either.
Well tonight, while putting my kids to bed, there was a flashing outside the window. I opened the blind and wouldn't you know it...the police had someone pulled over. I don't know if it was for speeding, or just to check up on them, or what. But they are in here patrolling. Keep us all who live off the beaten path safe. =)
That being said, I have felt safer here than in any other place I have lived in my adult life. There is real sense of community here. Everyone is very friendly, but not nosey. It's wonderful!
