Tapestry Park

There is a new condo community across the street from where I live called Tapestry Park that I decided to finally go visit. This community isn't exactly brand new - I bet it's been completed for about a year, but I'm a bit slow when it comes to exploring something in my own back yard. 



It's been designed as a community with shops and restaurants on the first floor of the buildings and then the living spaces populate the floors above.  Most of the businesses have just recently started popping up, within the past couple of months, so I thought I'd look to see what was in the new spaces.  The restaurant that I could see from the road is called III Forks.  It looks to be a fairly expensive place - after looking it up online I see that serves steaks and seafood and has a glass wine room.  Then there was a jewelry shop, a coffee shop and a couple of places that said "opening soon." 



When I drove around the corner from the business area to the heart of the condo community, I saw this gorgeous spot with all of these bright pink flowers.


Even the stairs were gorgeous.  The bricks were scalloped on the edges.  I don't think I've ever seen scalloped bricks before.


Wouldn't this be a lovely place to sit and watch the water and the birds?  It was pretty peaceful when I was there.  A nice breeze was blowing, too, so it wasn't too hot at the moment.

It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood :)  Won't you be my neighbor?

Have a great week!
