Look at these idyllic photos. This is the mighty Delaware, with its beautiful lush greenery and birds and bugs living in harmony. This is why I love our town. It’s old, historic, and has bits of natural beauty all over the place.
You’d think we were miles and miles from civilization. In reality, we are a hop, skip and a jump from…..
I know this drives some people crazy. Big bad developments killing small, quaint towns etc. I don’t even particularly like Starbucks coffee – I’m more of a Dunkin Donuts kinda gal. But I love the fact that it’s there. I like knowing I can get a ridiculously priced coffee drink with enough caloric intake for my whole day and go see the mighty Delaware and pretend I’m George Washington. What. Like you don’t pretend. Whatever.
I just like my amenities. I love the view, the nature, the majestic beauty of places – but I also love amenities. I need amenities.
You know what makes nature even more enjoyable? A cup of overpriced iced coffee and some bug spray you bought at the corner drugstore.
