Dear Patty, Thanks for your Pathway Lighting query. We, at Cantine's Island, after years of site planning etc, have not planned any!!! I don't know what we will do..... Frankly flashlights, either handheld or the ones that are on headgear, like worn by miners has lots of appeal for me, personally. Light as needed, not introducing light pollution. I, by the way, have not got good night vision, and do understand folks wanting to have illumination at night.... I currently have a tiny flashlight on my key chain, powered by one battery, which doesn't sound like much, but in fact provides enough light to see to walk. Given that there's often be a 'schlep factor', and we won't have hands free for flashlights,the headband mounted ones may be a boon. However interested to hear about other folks. Our site is semi-rural; the idea of drowning out the lights of the sky is counter-intuitive, All Best, Ruth Eves @ AOL NEW QUERY: As we approach move-in, these questions are tumbling forth: anyone in residence have a space for teens?? Ours have requested a specific, existing space very separate from our houses and common-house-to-be, and given that we anticipate being a kid-magnet in general, which we hope will be fine , there is some leeriness about this. Partly, they are requesting a space for which some 'adults' have a lot of fondness', and may be useful as retreat space for adults, and possibly as guest room space, as we cannot afford to complete common house upon move in. Other leeriness is that it being so separate, we will have no way of knowing who comes and goes there, exposing us to ....... everyone's wildest thoughts echoing from their own youths!! I am considering offering my own basement as a clubhouse, perhaps one night per week, and would like feedback about this. They could be reasonably private there, it's a kind of neat space, and they might like it. This idea has just come up in my mind, and am open to feedback about how nuts I'd be..... But it may be available, fun space, I may or may not be around, but at least they'd be up in the housing area...... rather than 'down below' on separate area of land, which is current request. All Best, Ruth Eves @ AOL
