Excellent title - and theme for my next two days... smile
Ginnie Hart: You're almost on your way, Elizabeth!
i like this construction on high ground, Ginnie. this house not getting a flooded basement anytime soon.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Ayush. But one does wonder what lies over the horizon.

Is that a Guest House, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I doubt it, Ray. Probably a store/business/office of some sort?

Eye-catching shaker style siding used on this residence with is nice textures in the sun.
Ginnie Hart: I fell in love with New England architecture like this, Steven. Thanks.

What a fine building - the proportions are very pleasing, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I found myself falling in love with New England and its architecture, Lisl. Thanks.
Oui il faut tout au moins essayer de voir au delà  de toute cette morosité !
Ta photo est très jolie .
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Claudine, and merci.

a very solid looking building - but there is also some feeling of tristesse I cannot explain .
Ginnie Hart: It's something I have only seen in New England, Philine, so perhaps part of the old country (Ireland) tristesse?
Elle ma paraît un peu austère cette maison en bord de route.
Bonne journée Elaine
Ginnie Hart: Very old country, Pascale...like probably Ireland?
Oups, pardon, Ginnie ;-)
Ginnie Hart: HA! I did the same thing today, Pascale, calling someone else another name. It happens to the best of us!

Always best to look ahead rather than backwards. Although lessons learnt from the past will help in the future smile
Ginnie Hart: One would think the past teaches us, Alan, but I'm not so sure anymore!

I love the weather beaten siding and the architecture. I think this will stand for a little longer, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: If it has stood this long, Astrid, my guess is it will stand forever! smile
Ces maisons ont l'air assez anciennes. Je vois des citrouilles à  gauche.
Ginnie Hart: It was back in October when we were there, Martine, nearing November when Americans celebrate Thanksgiving. smile

I am trying to do just that thing this morning Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: The last time something devastating happened in your country, Chris, America followed suit. I can't tell you you HOW MUCH I pray it does not happen again. (sigh)
A house of great charm Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Bill!

All I can say Ginnie is that Belfast in. Ain’t looks nothing likeBelfast in Ireland.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure you're right, Chad!
Helemaal mee eens, er is overal een lichtpuntje hoe klein ook !!
Je moet hét zien hè ?
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Marjolein. We always have to look for the bright spot...and we'll find it, for sure, if we have eyes to see.

de jolies pierres
JP
Ginnie Hart: Not something we see very often in America, JP.
awwww, bleak? there's new movies on netflix, wot bleak? smile
I like this picture very much, it reminds me of 'The Shipping News'... about Nova Scotia, or Newfoundland... I always get those two mixed up!
Ginnie Hart: Ah, yes, I can see "The Shipping News" here, indeed. Newfoundland. smile
Could say the house up the hill has some real swag.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Mary, Now I want to know what's OVER the hill! smile
I believe in finding joy and beauty every day, no matter what! A charming image. friendship
Ginnie Hart: Good for you, Ruthie, and I agree. Finding joy and being thankful for what we have!
The future does not seem bleak on this pretty and charming house. In addition, it has a store next door, probably convenient for emergencies. Beautiful framing Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Even with lowering skies, there can be much to look forward to, Marie! Merci.
I like these two buildings, the one at the rear looks very American in style to me.
Ginnie Hart: The old world coming to the new world, Brian!

en toch zou ik over de top gaan kijken Ginnie...

een knappe foto..

greatings
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Willy. Let's see what happens!
this is a beautiful old house Ginnie and you caught the perfect point of view....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
I try to figure out why there there is an unfinished zebra crossing in the foreground?

Oh so first the outline of the box is drawn then the colour white will be added into the box?

Wow, and this is Belfast, ME not Portland, OR?! I am beginning to love Belfast now.
Ginnie Hart: On the left is the beginning of parking spaces, LC. Maybe that's the answer to your zebra question??? But yes, Belfast, ME...and not that far from Portland, ME...the other Portland! smile

Indeed! Happy to say, my errands are done for this season. Now to party on!
Ginnie Hart: HA! You go, Girl!

Living/working just over from a blind hill on what looks a road that can get busy, seems less inviting. The house on top of the rise can see both sides, but not from where the black SUV has to enter the road. Looks a nice building though.
Ginnie Hart: The good news, Louis, is that it's a small town, +/-7K people, so I don't suppose anyone worries too much? Still, they need to pay attention!

i've only been to Maine 1 time, but was so impressed with it i was ready to move there : - )
Ginnie Hart: I can totally understand! Now two of my 6 remaining siblings live there, after spending all their lives in Michigan!
