what does "reclaimed his roots here"mean? People had flocked to the beach to take advantage. He’d even spot-ted Vinnie through his telescope, riding waves with the same flash and verve he’d had as a teenager. The warm, the flowers, the voices carried on the wind, and the cheerful blue of the sea nearly lulled him into thinking everything was normal and settled and right. It made him wonder what life would be like if all that were true. If he made his home here, did his work here, reclaimed his roots here without the nagging weight still chained around his waist.does "reclaimed his roots here without the nagging weight still chained around his waist. "= he wants to find his roots here, live here, but don't want to put on weights?

Yes it means he wants to reconnect to his roots (his history,origins) but not be tied down by other things.( I can't say what as I don't know what the book is talking about) maybe burden of family connections etc.
