Home town photos

Is there something special or unique about your home town? Let’s share some words and photos so we can see a bit of where we all come from. It’s always interesting to learn about other people and places! I come from a town called Southend on Sea, it is around an hour away from hustle, bustle and excitement of the city of London.

 

Here it is quieter, but there is still plenty to do and has a great arts and cultural scene. We have a lot of tourists come to visit during the summer as there are many amusements and attractions to keep people of all ages entertained. My photo looks out over the sea and onto our pier, which as an interesting fact is the longest in the world at 1.3miles (2.1km)!

 

Southend on Sea is also twinned with the Polish town of Sopot, hopefully I will get to see that place some day to see how similar it is!

#5 Our Home in the Middle of Paso Robles Wine Country

I took the photo of our little converted barn house from the  tasting room of Croad Vineyards, our next door neighbor. We don't have any vineyards ourselves, but we sure enjoy looking at those of our neighbors that surround us. I'm thankful the California wine country fires didn't touch the Paso Robles area wineries, but I grieve for our neighbors farther north in Sonoma County.

Were I to move away from wine country, I'd miss seeing the way the vineyards change through the seasons. I'd miss the greening vines in spring. I'd miss the vines loaded with maturing grapes in summer. I'd miss the aroma of crushed grapes in autumn after harvest. I'd miss seeing the vines dressed in their fall colors. I'd even miss the bare vines in winter, resting and preparing for the next growing season after they are pruned.
