Day 125 - Worman's Mill

Walking down Beige Street
I had never been in Worman's Mill before, so today I chose it for my walking location.  It is a development consisting of condominiums, single family homes, townhouses (oops -- "villas") and more.  I had no idea that the place was so huge!

There was a lot of new construction going on, so I followed the "Model Homes This Way" signs until I found them, knowing that I could probably find parking there without needing a resident tag.  I found myself in a section called "Mill Island," which turned out for me to be a good place to have chosen, because there actually was a mill in Worman's Mill, and this area had the ruins preserved.

The Mill at Worman's Mill
There were nice, wide streets, walking paths, and sidewalks.  It was an ideal place for walkers and runners -- if you aren't bored easily.

Every house was either tan or beige or brick.  Although the developer/builders have added "character elements" such as porches, garages, turrets, sunrooms, or given some of the homes a "Tudor Cottage" look, everything was so much the same.  I find this to be so true in new developments, whether they are in Maryland or in Florida or in Texas.  Isn't vinyl siding made in colors other than white or tan or beige or pale gray?   Even if stone is used, it is gray or beige.  Whatever happened to color?

Walking in subdivisions, mine included, may be safe and great for pushing strollers, but I'll take a small town or an old, established neighborhood with 75+ year old homes any day.  I'll just have to pay good attention to the trip hazards.
