My town, Vacaville California

i've lived in a lot of towns in my life. as both an army brat, a sailor, and now as a geezer, i've been around. one of the great things that has happened to me in the last three years is that my wife and i moved to Vacaville. this town has such a friendly small town feeling that it's hard to imagine living anywhere else. this place has a sense of community, a small town heart in a large town body. here are a few images from the last couple of days.
first, our town Christmas tree, right at the end of Buck Ave, in the heart of the old downtown.

and here are a few of the second floor windows at the local bike shop.

a patrolman was checking us out while i took the window pictures. i guess it's not really common for folks to be out and about well after dark taking pictures of local buildings. if you look around, you can probably spot a few hidden gems in your own town. these have been looking down onto the street for a few years. every town i've lived in has had something equally cool, squirreled away in plain sight.

and a little Christmas full moon for you viewing pleasure.

check this one out full sized. i like the effect of shooting through the trees in my back yard.

I always liked the weather at Mare Island. I bet Vacaville, for all it's homey charm, is a bit colder in the Winter and a lot hotter in the Summer. Not for me.

Here is the true test of habitability. Will you retire there or wander on to more temperate climes?

to quote myself, in a comment made to my wife after we were all moved in: "the next time i move, it will be in a bag with a zipper up the front."

Bothenook,
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and the family. Looks like a great little town. Why in the world would you want to move in a garnment bag???? (Grin)
