In another month, the flower beds will be filled with fantastic color from the flowers that will bloom there. They don't put them in the ground until after the threat of frost has passed. That doesn't stop the owners from having beautifully manicured lawns.
How nice it would be to live in one of these beauties, however, I'm not sure that I would like having people, like myself, diving the road taking pictures all the time. Plus there isn't a home on this road that has less than a million dollar price tag.
Most of the homes sit on a nice piece of property............................
Then there are a few that have been built right next to each other. They could be owned by the same family, maybe mother/daughter owners. Or a part of the property sold because of what the owners could make on the sale of a lot.
The row of houses in this photo, are located on the other side of the canal. They have all been built in the last ten years. When we first moved here that land was all marsh-like property.
Each of the original houses, came with a lot, as shown above, across the street from the home with access to The Canal. Each had a dock where they could tie up their boat or boats.
Most of the properties also have boat houses: it is not unusual to see the owners out there, usually on a Sunday morning, having brunch or some other kind of social event. I couldn't get a good picture of the more elaborate boat houses, as there were too many trees in the way, or another driver behind us was waiting to pass, when another car was coming in the opposite direction. But I'd take any one of them.
Well......maybe not any of them, this one is a little odd looking, but interesting. It had to take a lot of talent to get that 3-D look on the outside of the building.
Downtown Lewes is charming. It has many little shops that would perk any one's interest. It always amazes me how this area can support so many great activities year round, there is always something going on. So much so, that in the next few years, cruise ships will be docking here during their ocean voyage down the East Coast.
Hope you enjoyed a very small look at the homes on The Canal, maybe you just might see them for yourself some day.
