Beatrix Potter home/Lake District. As a child, I didn't care for Ms. Potter's stories, which were more depressing than entertaining. However, I do admire Ms. Potter's artistry and success, her strength of character in the face of societal constraints, and her efforts to preserve the Lake District. She was before her time; I would like to believe that we would have been friends if we had met.
"The Abandoned Treehouse" -- [The Redmond Treehouse of Redmond, Washington located at NE 73rd Way, off 148th Avenue NE, next to the Grass Lawn Community Park in Redmond Washington. Built by Steve Rondel. His children grew up before he could finish this exceptional treehouse. He started it 20 years ago when his oldest son was 5.]~[Photograph courtesy of Curious Places blog from the book "Treehouses of the World" by Pete Nelson & Radek Kurzaj]'h4d-287.2013'
