Moving to Bowie?

"As I was taking my walk and rejoicing in this gorgeous late-October morning, I noticed four javelinas watching me from the adjacent vineyard. Through all my travels, this has always been 'my home'. I am so grateful to be living in this small high desert community surrounded by wildlife, mountains, trees, vineyards and, most of all, good people. We are proud of our area's rich heritage, steeped in colorful history. We have been survivors through ups and downs in its economy. Today as we begin to rebound again, I see the vision and resilience that has always lived here. WELCOME TO BOWIE!"
