As a child I hated living in a small town. There was nothing exciting about a town with two traffic lights and no place to eat. (Today we have three traffic lights and a McDonalds!) Where everyone knows everyone and all their business. As an adult a small town atmosphere is comforting. One night my family took a walk through Canal Fulton and down the towpath to Lock 4. It was cool showing my kids where I grew up.

The Canal Boat. You can actually ride on this boat up the canal, being pulled by two mules. (Yes this was the fun exciting stuff I did as a kid)

My elementary school. (Which at one time was the high school my grandfather attended)
My house. It was built by my great grandfather and my parents still live there today. It is weird having around 3 acres in the middle of "town".
