Cloud House

Whenever I save a favourite photo I try to give it a name instead of the generic number produced by my camera. Usually I will name it for a town near by or something about it that caught my eye.  I always called this place Cloud House. The second time I came by, there was absolutely no clouds, so I think I need a new name. Any suggestions? 

I first found this house by chance back in May 2017. I caught a glimpse of the roof from the road and knew I had to see more. I stopped in the driveway and stood on my car to get a better look at this old place down in a little valley. I could see a few outbuildings and wish I could've got closer. I took my photos and left. 



I was back in the area in October 2018 and found it again. There is some work going on and I think some trees had been cleared as I could see the place much better from the side of the road now. Also the driveway has a new metal gate across it.  I didn't get nearly as good of photos but I did see a barn that I hadn't noticed last time. 



Also wishing my American friends a Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. This post made me cry, friend Jenn … as reflects my life from 1982 to 2012 … after raising our family in that house and raising cattle in Feb/ March, kids went their own way and so did I … only sporadically returning to "the place" … but not often … as too many tears … Some time next Spring I would like to take you there, if you like? Much love, cat.
