Yesterday we drove up to look at the 40 acres with the realtor and be sure we knew where all the property lines were and ask any questions that hadn’t already been answered. Probably everyone who has read my blog more than a couple of times knows that I’m a country girl, I need space, I need to be a bit secluded. City life is not for me. Green Acres is the place to be! 🙂 Also, if you’ve read my blog more than a couple of times, I hope you know I always have at least a half full glass. I can see the good in most anything and it’s real easy for me to fall head over heels in love with a piece of land that offers little more than a bit of seclusion. Vince is the realist in this couple. Though he didn’t know it, I had a check in my pocket. I was ready to seal the deal on this piece of property.
There’s a highway about 40 miles east of us and I love the property in that area. There’s one for sale that I’ve had my eye on for about a year. I keep telling Vince I want to live on that highway. This piece of property is also on that highway. Sounds like the planets are aligning for me, huh?
The highway is a minor highway . . pretty much just local traffic and not much of that. When you turn off the highway, this is the driveway to get to the property.
Here’s another part of the drivewa. It’s a bit longer than 1/4 mile. There are a couple of places where a little creek (or two) feed into the pond and cross the driveway and culverts need to be installed. Not a big deal.
This view . . can you imagine this in a month or so when the leaves are changing color and all those glorious fall colors are reflected in that lake? I could have stood there all day and looked at the view.
There were some of the coolest spider webs in the trees. You would think after my encounter with Mr. Spider last week, I would not have been so fascinated with the spider webs.
Way off in the distance you see Vince and the realtor walking around the lake. What they’re actually doing is performing a scientific experiment. Vince had sprayed both of us with tick spray, the realtor and his wife did not use tick spray. They’re seeing who will get the most ticks. Vince got two that we know of. He works with the realtor so I’ll have to wait til Monday to see how many ticks he attracted.
I’ll share the numbers once I find out!
