Always enjoy visit of coming back home

On a recent visit to Alpena to attend a baby shower and visit family, I always enjoy the city I was raised in. My experience when touring Alpena and seeing changes to the city, my heart longs for days past. The majestic trees that lined State St. , the beaches, schools no longer there and businesses gone to a newer version.

I leave knowing that I can always return to open arms and the beauty that is Alpena. Thank you for a short but fulfilling stay that renewed memories.
