But sales and resales have exploded. Close to 50 lots have changed hands and maybe a dozen more are pending sales.
This means lots of new owners and potentially lots of new homes being built.
The introverts among us may not be too happy about the masses flooding in, and although I am one of those types, I remain optimistic that the new owners will be more actively engaged in preserving and protecting the qualities of our special place while working together to improve and enhance existing infrastructure and amenities.
At the time of this writing I am NOT happy to report that I’ve received reliable information that Ralph Bayers has made formal offers on both Lot 300 (brown building) and the new illegally subdivided lot on which our soon-to-be-former common building (green building) sits. Mr. Bayers has spent the past couple days clearing out the trash in the brown building, so it may be safely concluded that his offers have been accepted and he will close on both buildings in due time.
What this means for the future of the center of our pristine wetlands and our development itself is uncertain. I do not have a good feeling about this, as I fought, with little success, to activate lot owners to speak up against this infringement and flagrant violation of our license agreements guaranteeing us access to and eventual title to ALL of the common lands as specified in the agreement. We shall see in due time…
There is a prayer called the Serenity Prayer popular with those struggling with substance abuse and addiction. I will endeavour to embody its plea.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
No matter what the future holds, I am still hopeful and excited at the prospect of the border reopening and returning with George to our beloved Abbecombec.
