“After living and working in the Washington, D. C. area for over 35 years, my wife and I made a decision to move to RWC more than a decade ago. We have found that our life style has changed only to the extent that we have more free time to engage in the activities that have always been a part of our lives in an environment free of the traffic and other stresses connected with an urban living.”
