|Ice skating draws participants to Marietta, GA town square|
The end of 2017 and the beginning of the new year have been rather cold down South.
Well, that also means, naturally, it has been cold up North, too.
And when one faces cold temps, going outside or hitting the road, is not always a priority.
But sometimes there isn’t any alternative.
So I will harken back to the weekend before Christmas when we were in Marietta, GA.
It was cold, but not snowing at the time.
The city’s downtown square had that holiday atmosphere.
Christmas decorations adorned the area, Santa was keeping warm and entertaining children in a building on the square. And others who really enjoy the cold, were ice skating there.
The setting was idyllic.
And Webster, the dictionary, defines the word as “pleasing or picturesque in natural simplicity.”
And the town square was just that. Hundreds were out and about shopping, browsing or enjoying the variety of gastronomic offerings of the various eateries in the area.
My wife and I enjoyed a feast at a local place and then I strolled around the square snapping a few pictures.
