Vince and I went back and walked the property at the house we looked at last week. It’s so pretty . . though not a whole lot of useful land. There’s between 9.5 and 10 acres there and probably 5 or 6 acres of it is usable as far as building or gardening. The rest is surely great for viewing. I can tell you that walking down was a whole lot easier than walking back up. There are what I think are some wild roses with thorns and each path I tried to take took me right through a thicket of thorns!
When it rains or when the spring upstream has more water, the water comes trickling down this rock into this little pool and then overflows on downstream. It’s just beautiful!
Poor little frog minding is own business and here come humans . . and one has a camera! 🙂
Isn’t he cute? And, look at that clear water with those fall leaves all around!
Another inhabitant of the land!
Just looking down at the bed of the stream.
There’s a whole rock face along the stream bed.
I love this tree! There are three trees coming up from the base. I’m sure there’s a name for it but I don’t know it.
And, look at these roots! Looks kinda spooky, huh?

What to do . . what to do? We don’t know. So many variables right now. I’m glad my job description is limited to making decisions on furniture and mixers and Vince gets to make the big decisions about things like buying another place.
If it was up to me, I’d say . . we buy this place, use the little house that’s there already for a quilting studio/guest house and then build us a house on the property and sell our current home. Maybe someone will come along and buy it and we won’t have to make a decision. That’s the easy way out, huh?
