Like a Vacation Destination

So far (and we don't have a lot of data yet) a walkable neighborhood is like a beach vacation destination. So many places to see: bars and restaurants, quaint little movie theaters, jewelry stores, unfamiliar grocery stores: all that "new and fun" stuff.

At some point, it has to stop being "new and fun", and start being more of "Why can't Harris Teeter stock a decent brand of pasta?" and "Why can't they fix these dryers in the laundromat?"

Until then, it's a vacation where we don't have to clear out of the beach house at the end of the week. We can unpack the suitcases and spread out a little.

After stuffing ourselves at the No Frill Grill and having one more beer at the Red Dog, we're not going back to a vacation rental, we're stumbling home.
