My View of Hasty Brook

video

We made a quick day trip up to Hasty today to deliver the shower. The plumber is coming tomorrow and the electrician on Friday. When we pulled up the builder shouted out right away that the stairs were built! Finally I could get upstairs to see the view.

I'll be posting the photos of the building progress over the next few days but I can't wait to share the view that I'd been longing to see.

In case you didn't know, the river is actually called Hasty Brook on the map.

Pardon the rain spots on the camera lens. It was raining buckets.

Soon enough you will have your secret hideaway, your own Shangri La at Hasty Brook.

Oh, I am so excited for you. What a great view. But I must admit, the words "deliver the shower" sound musical as well. I can't wait to follow the progress.

Tina said...

I can really feel your excitement as you climbed those stairs and saw that wonderful view..and then one can't help but think about when the leaves change color and when the storms roll in and when the birdees sit in those tree tops and sing..oh my, what thoughts..huh?
Neat! So glad all is going well...and your dream is coming true...you deserve it!!

Hi Lynne. Well I've said it before...dreams do come true. Great views over Hasty Brook. I bet you can't wait to sit out on the deck with the camera. FAB

Oh Lynne, I am so happy for you. That is truly a marvelous getaway--and you all will LOVE it. I would love to have a place like that in the woods --among all of those trees. And having Hasty Brook nearby, WELL--life is good.

The video is great.. And the view is fabulous. Keep those pictures coming.
Hugs,

You have a hawk's eye view there Lynne! Wonderful! So different from the view from my land IF I had a house built there to get a view from! (Well, actually, there is a view just standing on the land!) I am so happy for you! You deserve a room with a view!
