The Grand Ol’ House

Driving to our picnic destination I spotted this beautiful home. On the way back I made Andi stop so we could take a few snaps.

Unfortunately the only place to stop was in the driveway so I couldn’t get far enough away to photograph the bank on either side of the bridge. Yes, as you probably didn’t realise, this is a bridge leading up to the house. There were swans swimming in the lake too… wow.

I’m pretty sure the people inside the place spotted us but I'm willing to bet that they’re fairly used to people stopping and taking photographs of their house by now.

  2. Gated houses always seem so mysterious. They envite but then they say "no."

  4. Beautiful spot. I like taking pictures of lovely places, too. What's really fun is when people take picture of our house. We have a white country Victorian with a wrap around porch. :)

    Thanks for following me. If you indeed looked at my blog, you'll see one or two pictures of it on my scrolling pictures. The one with the rainbow over the cupola, house and trees is our place.

  16. Very mysterious. I like how the house is set far back and the overgrown shrubbery on the driveway.
