Canal Winchester, Ohio

Good morning,

These images are of our arrival in Canal Winchester, Ohio, where my brother has lived with his family since he left The Ohio State University.  His job took him all over the world, but he always returned to Canal Winchester where he and his wife raised their two children.
Driving into this little town has the feel of a step back in time.  There are flags everywhere, the railroad crossings resemble those of our childhood, and...
...even the little train station is as it was so many years ago.
The downtown streets haven't changed much, either...
...and there are plenty of small, local businesses in operation.

 Just outside of town there are new, modern stores, but this section of town is just so warm and comfortable. 

I love this place where my big brother lives.

I think the Midwest is fortunate in having places like this that seem to have defied time. Usually, the outskirts have a box store (or more) and the McDonalds, but the main streets live on. Thank goodness!
