DAY 12 - A Photo of the Town You Live In.


I absolutely love my city. Sure, it rains 70% of the year, but there's just something about it that you can't help falling in love with! The two pictures at the top are of my neighbourhood during sunset. It's a very relaxing place full of young families, couples walking their dogs, and people going for an evening run. In the summer, it's full of tourists taking pictures left, right, and centre and people (young and old) enjoying ice cream or gelato by the water. The dock is full of boaters coming back from their day of fishing - they park at the dock and sell their fresh seafood to tourists and locals. 

The two pictures on the bottom are from a city near by - that is where my fiancee proposed two weeks ago! Gorgeous place, right? :) 

What do you love most about your city?

70%!!! Wow, but it is very scenic. It looks like a nice place to live. My city isn't much of a city, but I like that my family has roots there that pre-date the subdivisions...back to when it was farm land, orchards, and a tiny train-stop town. Plus it's close to DC--which is actually good and bad.

LOL, okay, so I am no better at knock-knock jokes today than I was at 6. But in my defense, I hadn't even started school yet. =)

These pictures make it look like your city is waterworld or something I love it haha :) I definitely fell in love with your city and think I like it better than my city ... the only thing I really love about mine is that my friends/boyfriend live in it ... sad, huh? Hopefully I'll find a great place to live in one day!
