This is the house my hubby grew up in, but the current owners are not taking care of it. Up close it is in pretty bad shape. Three stories, and below is where my husband's room was...pretty cool. He said there was an elevator and the top story is where the servants stayed. It is a shame the house is falling apart now. I am sure a very wealthy family came from New York, built the house for a summer home, but maybe no one was left to take care of it the way it was meant.
After hubby's nieces graduation party we hit the beach. The weather was perfect, 74 degrees, but the water was still a bit cold. So she got the tour and then it was off to his step mom's for the next two days.
Sis likes green...like my mother...has to have her pic taken with everything green...
Next we took her to some wineries, as she had never been before. We took her to a really upscale Sparkling Pointe and then to what step-mom and I laughingly call 'The Shack' at One Woman. What a long day we had! It was nice to return home for a few days of rest before we head out again. I have a stack of books just waiting for me to begin reading, and a few poem ideas to begin drafting. How was your weekend?
