It's peaceful here, across the road from the Potomac River in Southwest Washington. The sun glitters on the water and there is little to be heard but the flutter and caw of the gulls and the hypnotic clank from the sailboats at their docks.
Peace is one of the chief attractions of the 64 townhouse condominiums that make up one segment of Tiber Island, a neighborhood of sand-colored condos and co-ops, houses and apartment towers, that anchors the end of the riverfront promenade farthest from the hubbub of the fish markets.
