That’s it. We’re done.
We moved to this once-upon-a-time lovely seaside city to raise our daughters and had hopes of retiring here. I had a dream of leaving White Rock in a pine box, I loved it here so much.
Pfft. There goes that dream.
We have had our garage broken in to twice now. Just recently a courageous robber broke into our home whilst we were sleeping.
We live in the vicinity of an empty house on Marine Drive. The RCMP have paid many a visit to this location. This house has squatters living in it. It’s such an eyesore with the grass two feet high that folks think it’s OK to dump their refuse in the laneway.
We called the city to remove the garbage, to no avail.
We also have ignorant neighbours planting trees that block our once-upon-a-time seaside view, and they do this because this city doesn’t have a proper and fair-to-residence’s tree ordinance – but they can clearcut the ‘hump’.
Well, White Rock. Good riddance.
We’ve sold our abode and can’t wait to make a fresh start in a more desirable neighbourhood.
