This was, perhaps, the most interesting of the several houses I explored that day. So many different rooms Strange openings from one into another. All so fascinating.
Like many houses this old, and this size, there were two stairways to the second floor. This was useful since the main stairway was blocked by collapsed ceiling. The back stairs, however, were manageable if you remembered the lessons of earlier that day. Stay light, stay nimble, don't let too much of your weight rest anywhere for too long.
Another fairly typical old farmhouse in rural Ontario. Nothing particularly special about it. Nothing that would call you from any distance. Pulling up beside this one, I honestly didn't expect a great deal. Something about it, however, just had charisma, charm.
*Special thanks to Kim for making me aware of this place.
Several large turkey vultures took off from the roof as I approached the old house. They didn't seem terribly concerned about my presence, but left as though doing so was simply the polite thing to do under the circumstances. When I entered the house, certain sounds indicated they did not represent the only wildlife making use of this discarded shelter.
