We unpacked (mostly).
It is time for the virtual tour.
I wouldn’t want you to miss anything so lets start at the very beginning…
As you head up the driveway turn and look behind you, past the mailbox, across the field you will see a little grey house in the distance. Wave and say goodbye, that’s our old house and it won’t be around much longer!
When you have said your proper farewells head up the long driveway.
The orchard that you are passing, (along with the driveway) is not ours but our new neighbors and the barn you will drive by is where their 100-year-old cider press resides.
Note: If you are virtually (or actually) visiting in the winter please reflect on how happy we are to live far off the road rather than curse the length of our driveway which we hear has drifting problems.
Once you make it to the top of the hill, watch out for girls on wheels!
While the new place has it’s own small orchard, as well as a woods, yard with lots of gardens. a house and a garage to explore the girls are most enamored by the driveway.
The driveway which is on the opposite side of the garage as the house. The driveway which has western exposure, no shade, no lawn, just a nice chunk of pavement that resembles an oven in the late afternoon. The driveway is not everyone’s favorite part of the new house.
But, after a month of having a paved driveway even the littlest girl can now go faster than my focus!
And the others are doing tricks – Look, no hands!
If you can manage to park your vehicle out of the way of the circus on wheels you will no doubt be pressed into watching a full “show” of the best and current tricks. After managing to extract yourself from that situation (and before you protest remember the oven factor) ask Clara to show you the house. Then try to keep up as she runs past our two car garage (that only has room for cars in it in my dreams) and heads towards home… (and part 2)
I also like your driveway. Can’t wait to see Part 2 of the tour!.
It is wonderfully long that’s for sure, a very welcome change!
The long drive is beautiful! Glad the girls are having so much fun in their new home 🙂
I can’t even describe how nice it feels to be this far off the road. AND the new road isn’t near as busy as the old, it’s great!
Ah. A bikeable driveway. It’s the little things in life. Don’t keep us waiting too long for part 2!
Ivy can already bike down and back up the whole thing – impressive considering what she had been practicing on before we moved!
