Later that night, we saw a little owl perched on that railing post, surely awaiting his mouse-dinner that was lurking in the woodpile. You can barely see him in the dark, but he's out there.
And we found the cold storage cellar. Complete with running electricity! With a flip of a light switch we had light and could hunch our way to the back where they used to keep potatoes and other food stored.
And back to the top again.
Lily is standing on the bridge that led to the outhouse we had to use.
At least we had our own home-sweet-home to look forward to and new family memories.
