Taking the Long Way Home

I work in two different towns, one where I live and then one up the road a ways. There's a nice big highway connecting where I am now to where my schools are located. Its generally fast, direct and timely.

And I usually take the highway on the way into work when I have a place to be by a certain time.

But, on the way home, I meander, I explore and I take the roads I've not traveled yet. I see what's over the next ridge, I see if I can get there from here and I find previously undiscovered (to me) treasures.

I've found where I'd like to move if and when we are ever afforded the opportunity to upgrade. Plus its just nice to be reminded every so often that the fastest way to get somewhere isn't necessarily the best way to get there. Sometimes the scenic route has quite a lot to offer too.
