I am home...no doubt about it. I am so happy to be back. Olde Towne, Portsmouth, Virginia is the place I call home and with it's plethora of Fall activities before me, it is the best time to be here.
The leaves in shades of red, yellow, and brown are beginning to fall serendipitously from the old, stoic trees...crunching under foot. The smells of first fires waft through the air as you walk past decorated houses for the upcoming season.
Walking past the 40 plus restaurants in Olde Towne makes one realize I live in a Foodie paradise. Various wonderful aromas beckon us inside to nibble and partake. There is never a disappointment. Evenings capped off with a hot java from The Coffee Shoppe make long, lingering walks a delight.
Olde Towne Ghost Walks will take place this year on Friday, October 29, 2010. Commencing at the Trinity Lutheran Church graveyard and proceeding through Olde Towne proper, costumed docents will scare, treat, and delight the masses with tales from the past. This will be my first attendance of Ghost Walks and it will be nice to see it from the vantage point of living here. Tickets are a mere $10 a person and all proceeds go to the Olde Towne Civic League to fund their various projects. The walk takes approximately 45 minutes, so dress comfortably. Hot apple cider refreshments are provided in Middle Park at the end of the walk.
If you are close by or would love to make a Fall trip to a magical place, this particular weekend will not let you down. Olde Towne is my favorite destination.
I can not begin to tell you how excited I am to be back home.
For the reader who is looking for a Vinegar Based Sauce for a Pulled Pork Barbecue, if you search in this blog...up at the top...there is one I have posted before. Let me know if you can not find it and I will get it to you.
Hope everyone enjoys their weekend. We are off to spend time with friends in Virginia Beach.
This is Home Girl and I love being home.
