Here is Joelle’s challenge this month:
Welcome to November 2
Today’s prompt is: Why you love, or dislike, the holiday season.
Living in a seaside town you have to realise that businesses rely on the holiday season.
For residents, it means traffic queues, nowhere to park, shops full of bored tourists, harassed parents and screaming kids, nowhere to park, touring caravans blocking narrow streets trying to take short cuts or having got lost, nowhere to park.
Getting to work takes twice as long and getting home is an even bigger nightmare. Tempers rise, fender benders increase by 200%, and roadworks spring up like weeds on the busiest roads.
Our own leisure time is strained, weekends and shopping trips frustrating as there’s heavy traffic to get anywhere and did I say nowhere to park?
I’m looking forward to walks on the winter beach.
