Appreciating where you're from

It's so easy to take your home town for granted isn't it?

I want to really drum it in to Carson and bump that, yes we moan about the area at times, but we're actually super lucky to live here in the lovely seaside town of New Brighton.

Once the UK's most popular holidaying resort - we even had a tower (like Blackpool) and its' ballroom that hosted The Beatles gigs many years ago - I never appreciated what we had on our own doorstep until I see 'city folk' wishing they were near a beach for just one day.

I guess you absorb your surroundings in as 'normal' as opposed to being special - until you have the time to just stop. Watch. Open your eyes and ears and FEEL what is around you. Well, that's what I did today. I even took a few photos of the view - something I have never done! And I was, honestly, hit with 'wow' moment.

This post is just to show my pictures really, but also as a little nudge to all of you guys to appreciate where you're from. Enjoy....



Do you have anything special round your way? Do you even realise it?! I'd love to hear your stories. xx

  1. Agree. We should never forget where our roots are and once we look around, I bet many of us will find a lot of hidden gems in our neighborhood.

  2. My home town is Doncaster. I don't live there now, but I grew up there and all my family are still there. There is an amazing wildlife park =)

  12. I never truly appreciated my home town till I grew up and moved away. Now every time I go back to York I'm struck by what a beautiful city it is and how lucky I am to have grown up there and have a reason to visit!
