After we worked on the window we took a drive. Kayla and I did some small shopping but then took some time to just walk main street where it was blocked off so vendors can setup shops and sell food and all different things they make. Both sides were full of tens and all different kinds of amazing items to look through. Some were made by the vendor and you can just see the amazing detail and time put into each item. As we walked the street we just relaxed and had a good time. Our phones put away and just enjoyed the time away from everything online that has now taken over. One of my favorite things is just being there and enjoying a town where everyone is so polite and you don't feel you have to have your guard up all the time. It always gives me one of those old town feelings, old America. Every country has areas of old towns where life just seems to slow down a bit and things just take time to do. The rush of life slows and you just enjoy being around other people. You don't have to check your phone status or what is happening with whatever site you always watch.
You distress and just enjoy the day, grab some good food and walk the street. We got some kettle corn popcorn and just for that moment didn't have to worry about anything. We didn't have to see what was happening online or in politics. The world was still and that just doesn't always happen. I am very happy to have a place to go to and enjoy. An old town that shows you that everything we have today doesn't have to take over. I think we just move to fast sometimes, even me. I joke about just getting away from it all one day and settling down in a small town where everyone doesn't look down on there phone but up to what was given to them. All the beauty and life we have to offer and everything in and around it. When we go to the camp to visit everything just slows down and life seems so much more relaxed.
That night after dinner we headed down and saw the balloons go up. We setup or chairs and talked, got some nice good old carnival food and just enjoyed as they blew up the massive giants. As they lifted into the sky we were all amazed how big and wonderful they are. So elegant as they drifted off filling the sky. So peaceful just the wind moving you as you float across the beautiful land. Just relaxing and enjoying the evening. The kind you can't look at through pics or a video you have just have to be there living it.
So I say even though I do a lot online, still take time to rest, visit some of the older places your land offers and put your phone away. Take the time to breath in and out, look up not down. Smile and notice everyone around you. Once day it will pass and you will wonder how you missed it. Don't look at life through post and messages. I know that sounds odd coming from a post! However my point is enjoy life as you live it!
I hope you enjoy the pics, they don't do what I say justice per you just have to be there...
You are Never alone...
