A Beautiful “Resident” with Oxen Bigger Than She Is
They say there’s no such thing as perfect, which only means “they” never spent a day in the Land Between the Lakes. As for my husband and I… we do every chance we get.
We have certain locations we always hit when we’re in that part of the state and the Homeplace is one of our favorites.
See the “Farmer” in the Picture? Super Friendly!
My favorite skyscrapers, by far.
Gorgeous Trees at The Homeplace
There are buildings, which include rooms furnished with time-appropriate furnishings and barns for storing meat or tobacco. While these buildings are fascinating to see and photograph, my absolute favorite part of the Homeplace is the big, beautiful outdoors it sits on. The land and trees aren’t treated as though they’re “in the way” – which is prevalent just about everywhere else in the world. They’re treated as the vital contributors to life that they are.
The Homeplace: A Picture of Relaxation
As you can tell, just by looking at these pictures, the Homeplace is an escape as much as it is an education. If I had access to food (gluten free, at that) and cold drinks (sweet tea, preferably) I could literally spend an entire day at the Homeplace. There’d be plenty of picture-taking going on and even more time spent watching the adorable pigs, sheep, oxen, horses, ducks, and chickens.
I’d spend more than my fair share of time admiring all of the amazing (and they truly are amazing) trees and plants and talking with the wonderfully friendly people who “work” the farm.
Most of all, I’d just live in the moments and lovingly embrace every single one. The Homeplace is an excellent place to do just that.
