A Time Gone By

Do you know where this is?  It seems to have recently been repainted and “cleaned” up a bit which is too bad.  It used to be a little more loose in the past.  But I love coming across this – I always know when I’m getting close.  Sometimes, I do a little bit of hopping.  It speaks to me of an earlier, simpler time.  When children could play in the street with no fear.  When children were outdoors all the time and not indoors stuck to technology.  When afterschool and summer meant being outside all the time playing until it got dark and you were called to come in – even when I was little.  It speaks to me of Nantucket and the simple Nantucket I grew up with.  When I see this, it makes me happy.  Really.  It does.
