One of my favorite things about the quaint town of Mt. Gretna are the houses and cottages on the hill overlooking the lake. They all have beautiful front porches. After we left the lake on Sunday, we drove around admiring all the charming homes. The front porches definately get used in this town! Almost all the porches have ceiling fans and nice furniture, lights, plants and people visiting with one another. I'm sure for some of the residents, this is their summer home. I was only able to get a handful of pictures because it was a gorgeous evening...and most people were hanging out on their PORCH! As we drove up and down the streets, people smiled and waved to us like we lived their too!
I think what I like most about the porches is what they represent.
To me, they symbolize a more relaxed and slower time.
A time when people visited and enjoyed each other's company.
Most of the houses in our neighborhood don't even have front porches.
Do you have a front porch?
