Welcome to our town…

Hi..and welcome to Ohio

I’m joining Shannon on her around the world in eighty blogs.So I thought what the heck challenges can be fun so here we go…

Alot can be said about our little town.We are considered a tourist town in Summer.People come from all over to see  the sternwheel boats lining up along the bank of the river.Marietta comes with alot of old buildings that have turned into cute shops that you can walk through on your way to view our river.The views from the old train bridge can be amazing,but if train bridges arent your thing you can view the river from the many parks that sit along the river.While here you should view our little museum to learn all about our history.The Campus Martius is a cute little museum that also sits along the river.Are you getting the picture yet lol..our whole town is surrounded by the rivers that border us..So now I will leave you with some of our breathtaking views that you can see if you ever want to visit us…


So my thoughts on living in this town.My likes are lower crime rates,smaller schools,we have nice parks and great views,my family all lives here and we are close so that makes it nice.Some of the dislikes include how bad the traffic can be in the summer when everyone wants to pay visit,they shut our downtown down for festivals we have during the summer and its a real mess,when I had my surgery on my brain and spine to remove a cancerous tumor we had to drive two hours away to a good hospital to have the procedure done.After several days in the hospital and coming home with nineteen staples in my head that two hours was the longest of my life.Its nice that we are a friendly community it sucks that we dont have alot of the different choices for restaurants that bigger cities have.What can I say I love food and get excited about trip away just for food choices lol.Shopping can also be a drawback we have a mall,but not as many stores as bigger cities.Being built around rivers can be bad in times of alot of rain…A few years ago it rained so bad our schools flooded,downtown flooded,you couldnt get anywhere unless you had a rowboat it was crazy people lost so much and we lost alot of our mom and pop establishments because the funds werent their to rebuild.I was happy at that time that we lived on a huge hill that just overloooked the river.Anyways thanks for visiting with us we hope to see you again soon..

btw:I cheated on photos the only one thats mine is my family photo I havent felt good the past couple days…
