Most people leave home when they graduate high school. They go to exotic places for college or just one day up and move as far away from their home town as they can get. My Grammar School buddy, Kirk, moved to the west coast and then when that wasn't far enough...he left the mainland and now calls Kona, HI his home town.
I was one of the lazy ones who moved only as far from home as the end of the road. If I go out my front door, down my drive, walk left 300 feet and turn right and walk 5.7 miles I'll walk right past Weinstein's on the corner of 16th Avenue in Lake Como, NJ. If I keep walking another six blocks I'll end up walking into the ocean I swam in as a kid. I still go back 'home' every once in awhile and today I took my camera with me to catch a glimpse of what once was and never again will be.
So here it is my friend. Your Christmas trip back 'home'. Aloha and Merry Christmas!
