This may sound a bit like the venerable Charles Dickens’ novel A Tale of Two Cities, but we actually have two happy places to submit to this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge.
Our foremost happy place is Knoxville, Tennessee, where we’ve lived for nearly half a century! In 2013, artist Bobbie Crews led a group of artists to transfer her original design onto the side of the Visitor Center downtown. It embodies the happy, energetic, diverse side of Knoxville, for sure, and a bit of why we love living here.
But our other place is an “escape location” we’ve frequented one week each summer for three decades: Pawleys Island, South Carolina. Almost each morning of beach week, I climb the stairs to the widow’s walk atop our rental and watch the sun rise. The peace and quiet, the awesome beauty it all, and the respite from obligations the rest of the year — all make it a glorious happy place!
