A good of friend of mine sent me the following email the other day.
She said, “I am realizing that I am spending less and less time in my car than what I used to. Virtually everything I need is almost within walking distance of my home, which is close to the beach-front. Shopping is a breeze downtown or at The Village Shopping Center up on PCH and Marine Avenue. Upscale stores like Macy’s and other national retail outlets are available as are specialty shops and many one of a kind chic shops.
We have wonderful fully equipped parks, many with tennis courts, basketball courts and other recreational facilities. Even along the beach are park areas with grass, restrooms, etc. for the pleasure of who ever wants to use them. They are well manicured and very well kept and have lush green lawns and trees for that summertime needed shade. I can ride my bike to work and don’t need my car to go shopping; “I think I am going to get rid of the ole gas guzler”.
I am going green all the way ! “
