**some pictures removed**
Today was the day we traveled down to the land for sale I spoke of before. It is set between 2 country roads seperated by woods & a stream. This first & 2nd pic is the house & 5 acres parcel. We do not want this parcel (House too small for the family). See the woods far back in the first pic? That is how far back the land goes & past it is more farm land. I haven't lost ya yet right?
Well, after walking through all the high"yellow" grass & what seemed to be a field of corn that was never Harvested, We arrived at the woods.
Wow! I realy was not expecting it to look like this! We felt like we were walking in wooded trails you find in a park!
We came upon what looked like a bridge, but there was no road to be found! A mystery I will be asking the seller about. So intriguing.
*update* it turns out this use to be an old township road that was abandoned long ago. It is just past the property line so belongs to the neighbor.*
We had to cross the river to get to the second half of the farm land. Before we crossed, Panda & I saw a deer just ahead of us! I realy thought my eyes were deceiving me, but we saw it turn and hop away. She had that wonderful child's look of joy when they see such wonderful things for the first time. I felt so comfortable here and the children were laughing & just enjoying the stream & our walk.
Here is a look at where we had to cross over. That's Panda, her daddy, & "dawg". He demanded he was coming with us today & refused to budge from the car.So we let him tag along but warned if he got lost in the high grass, it would be his own fault for not staying home. Needless to say, Hubby ended carrying him since it was taller then lil'man.
This is a look down the stream by where we crossed and saw the deer.....
Oh, and I just could not leave till I got a shot of the old outhouse! It stood directly behind the garage with just 3 feet of space between its door & the back wall. Would that be a magazine rack I see?
We talked the entire way home about how great it turned out to be! The streamis the land separator. That would be the back property line right there. I am so so so so very happy with the place. I can see our house here and watching our children grow up playing on this stream! Well, I am going to call the guy in the morning to get some questions answered and see what would go with the land and what goes with our "crossing creek". Giddy giddy so very giddy......
