We took a bike ride in New Hampshire yesterday, about 7 miles off road over hills that were like mountains, but it was alot of fun - really it was! T had done this ride before and remembered it as being very picturesque, we were in a little town called Harrisberg, which really is a beautiful little town with a general store and some restored mills.
But, I like pictures of the unusual also, and this was the first house that I saw. Seems to be missing a chunk doesn't it? And rather abandoned which is too bad, it's a beauty overall - or could be.
We took off and after the first hill, I took this picture. It was a grey day, but the view was wonderful and it was nice to be riding out of direct sunlight.
Here is my road warrior staring at the farm. Why is he staring.....
Here's why - the beautiful farmhouse had gone to rack and ruin - but the ramshakle barn had a new tin roof. I think they moved house, T thinks that there was a great tragedy in their lives and they still lived in the house like Miss Havisham. Who knows. New Hampshire-ites are known for their independent natures and most anything goes.
Finally back to the Harrisburg General store, which is wonderful, in a great building and you can sit on the porch and sip your soda-pop and watch the world go by.
This is Dublin NH's old school house, now a historical society building. I have a thing for classic architecture, and just had to take this picture - the house lines just satisfy something in me. They just feel right - do you agree?
