Daboonies, Part Two

We headed back down Nursery Avenue in Amity, going makai [towards the sea] once again.  Along the road, we saw a farm that had a lot of tractors parked in the front yard. We couldn’t tell if they all got used, were for sale, or just basking in the sun after a long day’s work.

We were now headed through farm country to our next destination, the Subject Property, which is in Sheridan.

As you can see from GoogleEarth, we were smack dab in the middle of farming country.  We loved seeing how the railroad track went right through the middle of a hay field.

 I wondered if the train ever goes roaring by right when the farmer is cutting or baling his hay right next to the tracks.

 We stopped and watched the balers in another field for awhile.  We were up on a hill and had a great view.

These were not the usual size hay bales.  These ones were really large, all stacked neatly.


Oops.  Wrong turn.  Or rather, we missed the road we were supposed to be on and ended up in the tiny, really tiny, town of Ballston.  We should have swung left on Broadmead Road!

There was a “General Store” there, and I do use the term quite loosely.

Back on track again, we headed from Broadmead Road down Perrydale Road.


We drove through even more hay country, enjoying every minute of it!  If we’d had a laptop, we could have followed our tracks from up above. 

Along the way, we came across this lovely Victorian house, which was beautifully cared for. Everything looked immaculate!

This beautiful house was kind of an anomoly out in the middle of hay country.

It looked there was a separate garden area to the right of the driveway through the lattice gate. I would have loved to have explored more!

Even the mailbox was Victorian, and suited the house perfectly.

Last shot of the house from right in front, and then we were on the road again.

Pau Part Two.  Part Three coming up… in which we inspect the Subject Property end up in a small logging town for lunch.
