We talk about the barn all the time, but we seldom show what it looks like, especially the outside. People who visit are often surprised (if not dismayed) to see that we are not located in the middle of wide open space, as they often picture in their minds. Instead, we are nestled in the heart of Chestertown’s historic district, 30 yards from High Street and two blocks from the Chester River.
It is a gorgeous building, with many of the old barn fixtures still intact.
At one time, it was probably surrounded by fields. Nowadays, we have tiny strip of garden out front.
Doug the Baker’s large white truck almost always lives in this parking lot, but because it was Saturday, the truck was elsewhere, and Jiho was able to capture this rare shot of the exterior.
And another view.
There are days when I long for the mountains and forests of New England, but I’m increasingly convinced that Chestertown is my home, if only because it’s where my barn lives.
Note: The photo(s) in this post were taken by photographer/blogger/developer/promoter of clean code Jiho Sohn. I encourage you to check out his site. Furthermore, Robbi, Matthew, Alden, Kato, August, and Iggy are currently on the Alaskan tundra, fishing commercially for sockeye salmon and trying to avoid stray bears. They will return on July 17, at which point real-time blogging will resume.
