What does a day in Sun Lakes look like? I rose this morning to an incredible sunrise that filled the eastern sky with hues or orange and pink and red. The temperature will climb to the mid 70’s today and if there is any wind at all it will be a gentle breeze. Palm trees abound along with all the beautiful desert cacti that will begin to bloom in another few weeks. Slipping on a robe and slippers we have our coffee on the back patio reading the paper and listening to the sounds of birds and the water feature on the pool. Then for us as REALTORS we start our work day blogging, working with sellers and buyers and helping others dreams come true! We may have lunch with clients at the Poolside Cafe in Sun Lakes overlooking the saltwater pool and lap pool where residents are swimming laps or doing water aerobics or just lounging in the 80 degree pool. Driving through any of the Sun Lakes communities people are golfing on one of the 7 golf courses or playing tennis or pickleball or bocce. Residents are out walking their dogs and stopping to chat with neighbors. Some residents are zipping past in their golf cart on their way to the fitness center or to the community pool or hot tubs. Others are driving to make their tee time with one of the leagues for ladies, men or couples. A quick stop in the fitness center demonstrates the continued active lifestyle as men and women are working out on treadmills, ARC machines, weight machines or taking ZUMBA or Yoga classes.
Toward the end of the day we return home and gather with friends for a happy hour and dinner. Sometimes we gather at our home around the pool and we are often invited to others homes or to the Sunsets Restaurant at the Oakwood Country Club. We love Sunsets as it offers stunning views of the western sky and the sunset is truly amazing. The reflection in the lake with the water fountain spraying and ducks and egrets flying by is surreal. Sometimes there is a Jazz on the Patio where all glass doors of the Sunsets Restaurant are opened and we are outdoors on the patio listening to soft jazz and watching the brilliant sunset while enjoying delicious meals prepared by an outstanding chef. Sound like a vacation at a resort? That’s what Sun Lakes living is all about!
