Today I thought I show you some houses of the Waterloo suburbs which I always see on my way back from Acqua Gym.



Here is the house where I go each week for Acqua gym



On the right corner behind the flowers you see the window of the swimming pool.



The whole area is rather green and some gardens are really beautiful



they keep it simple



a little hidden



this front yard was very special with rather exotic plants



These houses were built mostly in the 70th/80th



except this one which is much older.

Beautiful houses. I think houses with slanting roofs look so cozy.

Thanks for your comment! I agree with you that too much money is s pent on the houses of God, while there are so many poor people who need all the help they can get from the churchgoers. Still a cathedral is always impressive to me, for it has a lot to tell about the people who built it and who lived in or around it. It makes me feel deeply impressed like being in a deep and high cave.

you are still young enough to enjoy your new baby grand son.
you have your health and your life is full and interesting so there is no reason anything will happen to prevent the future to be positive and wonderful.

Each house seems to tell a story. Sometmes, walking through a neighborhood, I like to make up stories about the (fictional) people who live there.

I guess that's the closest I will come to touring around your town.

Very lovely houses! Some look very luxurious in my eyes. And the house you go for aqua gym looked like a private home.
