When I’m not hiking Hiking I feel the need to stretch my legs and keep in shape so, I walk up what I call the “steep road” which isn’t too far from me. The total elevation gain is anywhere from 250-900ft depending on how good I feel. If I’m feeling great when I get to the top of the road I’ll veer over to the trail that takes me up to Fremont Older Open Space and get more hills in. But, no matter how far I go up I’ll usually end up on the road going down which leads me to this view, and past this house.
I love the pavers on the curved driveway leading up to the arched garage doors, and the balcony! 3 French doors and two topped with Ivy! SWOON! The tile roof… is gravy.
Quite often when stretching my legs I don’t carry anything other than my iPhone7Plus. I’ve regretted that choice more times than I can count! This was one of them. I blew out the sky to keep the house in the right light, but even it is a bit blown out. 😦 It was a risk knowing He-Man and I got started later than I wanted to. He likes to start later than I do and if I want his company I concede to his timetable most the time.
I hope you’ll see the house as I do when walking down that steep road after a long hike up. It always puts a smile on my face seeing it. It’s like a Villa isn’t it? I wish sometimes this was my final destination, but reality…it’s not! But, it is the first house of the last steep S curve going down. The road’s grade gets easier after this last S curve, and soon I’ll be done, and the deer are sometimes just around the corner at the bottom of the “S”! I hope they’re there this morning.
Here’s how I see the house from higher up the road.
The Deer weren’t at the bottom of the hill eating on this morning, but you know I hope they are every time I go this way! 🙂 I see Deer so often when out stretching my legs or hiking that I believe they’re my Spirit Animal. Coyote are the other 4 legged animal I see a lot when hiking. I wonder if I’m missing a sign and they’re my Animal Spirit? Maybe both? I should look that up.
I hope to be out birding this week-end so won’t be online much. I hope you all have a wonderful week-end and do something you love doing, and see a door or two along the way! xx 🙂
