The day my husband and I moved into Cedar Ridge, we knew we had made the right decision. The timing was perfect – we no longer wanted the responsibilities and duties associated with a large home so it was time to enjoy a more carefree life. And such a carefree life it is! We are constantly amazed at the variety of activities available. For card players there is Bridge, Canasta, Cribbage and Sheepshead. There are book clubs, support and discussion groups, a weekly Coffee Hour with guest speakers, and many monthly entertainment events to choose from. There are acres of natural space for walking and exploring. The fully equipped gym is perfect for my exercise program and a swim in the pool followed by a few relaxing minutes in the hot tub is one of my favorite treats. For spiritual needs there are weekly and monthly chapel services for all faiths. A perfect day may include lunch at the Market Café or dinner at the Top of the Ridge Restaurant. One of my favorite days is when my housekeeper arrives to clean our apartment. I have often compared living at Cedar Ridge to staying at a lovely hotel. During the first few weeks here I kept expecting a call telling me “Your vacation is over – you must go home now”. Then I remembered that we really ARE “home now”, in our comfy apartment, surrounded by dear friends, and having a wonderful time! I think my husband completely summed this up when he remarked – “this is just like old times only with new friends”. Those few words describe Cedar Ridge exactly!
