Reason #17 - Locally Owned Stores
Home this year, my sister and I went there immediately after running three miles. Perfect post-workout treat.
Reason # 66 - Big Trees
The trees are big and green and real old. There is something great about hiking around trees that are a hundred years old and massive. They are gnarled, mossy, and must have a lot of wisdom to share. If only I spoke Cedar. Here in this picture my bro-in-law stands in front of a root ball (can you see Marty creepin on him?)
Reason #90 - Long Summer Nights
The summer brings long nights, perfect for strolling, ice cream, bonfires, and being out on the water way too late. The day cools off, unlike here in the south, for a pleasant night hanging out til the wee hours.
Most of these things I took for granted growing up. What do you love most about your hometown?
