Home Town Advantage

It seems like everybody does it.  Or should I say doesn't...

What I'm referring to is that one thing that your home town area is known for, that every tourist comes to do, and yet you've never actually done yourself.

Why is it that so many of us do that?  And what does it take for us to finally go ahead and enjoy the thing that our area is known for?

Maybe it's because it will 'always be there'.  I think that for me it's a little bit about wanting to avoid looking like a tourist.  Shoot, I don't like looking like a tourist when I am a tourist...

Anyway this time around, when we head back down to Palm Springs next week, we plan to finally do the one thing that nobody would possibly have taken this long to do.  We are going to play a round of golf!

My husband has played exactly two rounds of golf in his whole life.  I have played none.  Wish us luck!

I'm really looking forward to driving the golf cart!

I certainly hope I can drive better than this!

We are so going to look like tourists!


  1. Hahahah golf cart driver doing wheelies. Maybe you will be terrific and maybe you should spend some time at the driving range first. Time will tell. Ha

    1. Good idea! I have only been to the driving range once and my swing was a little smoother and better than my husbands!

  2. Haha I know what you mean. I have never gone to any of the tourist spots back home and now I wish I did. Good luck. :)

    Stopping by from Left and Write, btw.

  3. Sounds like us! Born and raised right here and yet have only done a handful of what everyone comes here to see and do!

    Golf, sounds like fun. Good luck!

    Thanks for your last comments on my blog. I thought I had the email on my blog but I guess not. I think it was on the original blog. I have added it on the end of the left sidebar.

    Have a great time!

  4. Hope you had a great time! I've never been one to golf but I think driving a golf cart could be a new career for me! ;)

  5. There are so many things around me that I have never done, even though I've lived in the same 100 mile radius my entire life. I think there's a natural tendency to take for granted the things that surround us, which is sad.

    I really should make a "local" bucket list of things to do... Hmm....
