If we live long enough, we will reach the age of 55 (a milestone) and reaching 55 is an EVENT, it just happens. If in fact you’ve had that event, it becomes your CHOICE to decide what kind on Over 55 person you want to be.
Just because you’re over 55 ( or 60 or 65 or 70) does not mean it’s the end. As a matter of fact, for many of us, it’s just the beginning.
My decision (although I didn’t know it at the time) turned out being an Active Over 55 person. In most Active Adult Communities, there are many activities and clubs to consider. Pick a few of them and Shazaam, you’re an Active Adult.
Recently, a group of about 35 couples from Villaggio, an Over 55 Community (where I live) went on a valentine’s day cruise. We left on Saturday and returned on the following Saturday.
Being on a ship with over 2,500 passengers, it was nice to go about your daily business and continually run into people you know. We got to know some people better and we met some of our neighbors that we hadn’t met before. For Candace and me (The Harelik Team) who work full time, we needed the break. For others that are retired, it was a nice change of pace.
The ship we were on was the MSC Poesia. Our first two days were at sea. For me, that was wonderful. A time to relax, read, and spend time with my wife and friends. We then stopped in St Maarten for a beach day. The following day, it was Puerto Rico (a tour of the city). Then another day at sea, and finally Nassau, Bahamas (been there, done that).
It wasn’t so much just the itinerary that make the trip so enjoyable, it was a complete break from everyday living (which isn’t so bad). It was also the combination of taking time with our friends, eating, enjoying new places, eating, reading, eating, relaxing, and eating. By the way, the food was A Okay.
Not only do I participate in special events like this cruise, I also play Tennis, Cards enjoy our professional entertainment, socialize on a daily basis with my neighbors and friends and enjoy the comradely of people we have much in common with. It’s almost like living in camp. In doing all of the above, I consider myself an Active Adult.
Have you considered a lifestyle like this? Palm Beach County has over 75 Over 55 – Active Adult Communities. They cover prices ranges from the mid $50’s to as high as your budget can stand.
