|Fairytale Cottage in Stayton, Oregon (Locals call this home "the castle.")|
I feel like I've been MIA for over a month. Oh, wait. I have.
In my last post we were in Yachats, Oregon, enjoying the sand, surf and ocean breezes. A lot of hours and miles have been logged since then, as we search for our next home. From my perspective there have been a lot of highs and a few lows on this adventure. And one major meltdown somewhere in Tillamook on the thirteenth day. (Sometimes a home body just gets tired of traveling.)
One of my highs was stumbling upon the enchanting cottage, pictured above, in Stayton, Oregon. I love everything about this place. The owners have a private bridge that crosses the creek and serves as a driveway to their garage. You can't see the garage in this photo; it's the dark arch to the right. The Stayton (Oregon) Daily Photo blog claims the locals call this home "the castle". I wouldn't describe it that way from what I've seen. A castle is extraordinarily large in my definition. But whatever you call it, it's definitely a beauty. Too bad it's not for sale.
The creek curves away from the property and becomes part of the adjacent idyllic countryside.

We're currently365 miles way from Stayton, in the northeast region of Oregon, and still searching for a home. Although I have much more to share with you, I feel compelled to break the trip down into small posts like this one. To do otherwise may be like trying to drink water from a fire hose
