321. Upbeat

321. Upbeat
(adj) cheerful and optimistic
Location Placed: Historic House, Sandy Hook, New Jersey
Date Placed: 9/17/11 at 3:23pm

You can see part of the remaining For Hancock structure bits, as well as a portion of the history at the Historic House. In my intended upbeat fashion, I made good natured small talk with some of the other patrons visiting the house. We bonded about the lovely architectural pieces, the size of the rooms, and how wonderful of a view they had when people actually lived in them. Ignoring the fact that everyone was at least three times my age (perhaps a slight exaggeration), I was able to enjoy the Historical House in the absence of dragging anyone along on this adventure. I like imagining what places were like in their hayday, like the ancient historic ruins of many European countries I've been to. Do you guys ever wonder what a place was like some time in the past?

  1. upbeat- oooh this is one of my favorite English adjectives. Anyway, I sometimes wish I could time travel to see and feel what it's like to be during the early days. :)
