Gagetown

25 Jan

I don’t know what it is about Gagetown that I find so attractive but it might have something to do with its simplicity.  Gagetown is a village located along the St. John River.  It’s basically a one horse town.  One bar, one gas station, a marina, and a whole lot of awesome history.

As I get older, I’m starting to notice that I’m a bit of a history nerd and a huge fan of small, rural towns and villages.  I’m constantly fascinated by their unique histories, weather-worn buildings and homes, and the simple thoughts of what used to be.  Like stepping outside my surroundings, a visit to Gagetown offers continuous satisfaction with its craft shops, it’s cable ferry, and its winding roads that run between apple orchards and abandoned farms.

There are no buses, no taxis, and no busy intersections.  There are no traffic lights, no merging lanes, and crowds of booze hungry college kids.

Sometimes it’s just nice to see how others live.
