The theme for December 3rd is, in general, what people are most thankful for in their towns.
I did try to be creative for this post. I rang the council offices and asked the question but, to be honest, thought the lady lacked imagination even more than I do. OK, it's good to have a nice Civic Centre but really, is that all she sees to be thankful for? Shouldn't any town with an urban population of 48,000 expect to have decent civic facilities? So I decided to go with what I'm thankful for.
I'm thankful for miles and miles of mostly deserted, beautiful beaches:
For the many places where there is space for kids to be kids:
and private place where grannies can be grannies:
For our beautiful mountains:
For this, my local village, tucked in under the mountains:
Cool mountain streams:
I'm thankful that I can live on a farm, surrounded by all this beauty and still be not be too far from the amenities of town.
Mind you, that's just me.
