This summer has gone by way too fast! Not that we've really done anything...other than adopt! :) We spent some of our time at home enjoying our community. Bike rides were a highlight and I actually took the time to take pictures of our unique area. We live near the village where Martin grew up and it's easy to miss the everyday beauty.
The village lane.
The local country church.
The old homestead....
...where Martin's folks still live.
The old corral.
Showing the boys the old sign from the years of being Dairy Farmers.
If you look very closely you can see Henry H. Peters written on the sign.
Some more of the beauty...
There is something about the village that takes one back in time. It still has some old houses with the attached barns and well maintained yards, with a mix of dairy farmers and acreage owners. It is a very peaceful and quiet place. It is a place that is good on the heart and soul...and if you use enough of your imagination, you can almost make yourself believe you are in a different country. ;)
I said almost...not quite! lol! Heh! You gotta do what you gotta do. If the only vacation available is home, one must make it interesting.
