Looking to do some camping this summer? Before picking a destination, you’d be wise to talk to Lois Templeton.
“Before I moved to Breeze Park,” Lois says, “my husband John and I did a lot of camping and traveling. We went all over the country in a camper, and let me tell you — there are so many beautiful things here.”
So for her money, which was the best spot to camp? “Colorado was my favorite,” she says. “We loved it. We went back to Rocky Mountain National Park almost every year.” A close second for her was Yellowstone with its natural geysers, while the Smokey Mountains come in in third place. “But they’re all good. We have such a beautiful country to explore.”
Nowadays, Lois spends much of her time exploring her home at Breeze Park. “I do a lot of walking here,” she says. “I have to get out. If you just sit in your room, that would be boring.” When the weather’s nice, you can find her in the shady courtyard outside the window of her apartment. When it’s not as nice, she walks the halls and hits the gym to work with the weight machines.
Always moving…that’s Lois. And having just hit the 100-year mark, she doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. “I don’t get bored,” she says with a smile. “I’m a positive thinker. I try to look for the good in things. The way I see it, there’s always something to do, and here, I have people to do things with.”
May we all have such an outlook when we reach our first century!
