Childhood friends enjoy summer days in Vidalia

VIDALIA — There is nothing like having a childhood friendship.

For Cullen Weatherly, 9, and Hunter Golmon, 10, their summer days are spent riding dirt bikes together miles from town.

While the two said they have known each other since they began going to school, they recently bonded and became friends over the past year at Vidalia Upper Elementary and have been spending most of the summer together.

While the storm clouds began to gather on the end of Round Tree Road in Vidalia where The Dart landed on Friday, Weatherly and Golmon were still riding dirt bikes on their front lawn, one of the many activities the two said they enjoy together, along with playing X-Box, swimming and playing baseball.

“We can stay home and play and have friends over, all adults do is work,” Weatherly said.

While both Golmon and Weatherly said they have places they would like to go in the world, including Washington, D.C., and Hawaii, growing up in Vidalia is ideal.

Golmon said he loves growing up in Vidalia because of how wide open it is and how much room he has to run around.

“Being a kid, you get to do a bunch a of fun stuff, and all adults do is go to work and come home,” Golmon said.

Golmon and Cullen agreed if there is one thing adults need to do, it is make time for their friendships and enjoyment again.
