Last summer we gave up on finding the right house and moved an RV onto our daughter's land. Daughter has about an acre and a half of land with a strip across the back that was just overgrown brush and ground cover. Walking is the only exercise I get, so I asked Son-in-law to weed-whack a meandering path across that area so I could "hike" from our place to theirs and get a bit of a workout.
Daughter loved the idea and so did Granddaughter. The Path has become a family project. We look for pretty rocks and logs to line it with and now we're designing points of interest. Daughter put on her pedometer to measure it and now she's using it to leash-train a new pup. We've decided to add signs and yard art to commemorate family birthdays and Christmas. Next year we may put up lights. Today I heard someone in the neighborhood ringing an old dinner bell, so now I'll be on the lookout for one of those.
This path project has turned out to be something really special and fun -- also FREE! If you have some extra space and decide to try it, please share your ideas. I'll post photos, soon.
I just checked OLA for more ideas and found some great wind chimes and birdhouses.
