I retired three years ago and moved to Bedford June 1, 2010. I picked this area for two reasons: both my daughters (and all grandchildren) live here in Virginia, one in Richmond and one in Virginia Beach. I visit them frequently as another retirement occupation. They’re close, but not too close, if you catch my meaning. Of course Richmond does have a Bass Pro Shops, so… My younger, Jessica, went to Va Tech for five years so in the course of visiting her I became somewhat familiar with this area. That plus proximity to the lake made my decision. Bedford is my kind of town with a main street almost a block long. Visiting my older, Jennifer, in VB makes me think of trying the Bay for the stripers. Hmmmm, I’m not sure my boat will handle it, but I plan to try.
