Winter in Vernon

If I let my mind drift to my hometown, especially when I'm close to a visit, I miss the little things. A beach, a hilltop view, a coffee shop, the smell of fresh snow or lake water under the summer sun - pretty much anywhere or anything I used to take for granted that I'd always have at hand.

During the winter, I miss my old back yard on Dixon Dam Road, the view of the valley from the foothills below Silver Star, and from my parents' balcony on Bella Vista. So here are a few pics I'm looking at to tide me over until I'm home again.
