Robillard Flats

There was a time in my life, not too long ago, where I would get excited to visit a new mall, or to buy new shoes or a bag. You know, girly things. I still like the girly things, but my interests have evolved and changed. I had the opportunity "of a lifetime" this past weekend. I was allowed to visit the upstairs of a round barn!!! How cool is that???? I know what some of you must be thinking.......I would have been right there thinking along those lines as you a few years ago......."You're excited about going into a barn"?????
Yup, sure was! :-)
Day 129/Year 2
This is the barn located at "Robillard Flats Farm" in Irasburg VT. I have photographed this barn on many occasions, but this time was such a cool way!!!! The owners gave us full access to photograph the entire property. Here's some of the girls having their breakfast:

Now onto the really cool part. Here's a photo taken from the inside of "the hurricane room" as it is called. This is the upper portion of the barn. The reason why it is called the hurricane room, was because years ago during the Hurricane of 1932 the wind blew in so strong that it twisted the boards in this upper portion of the barn.

I also captured a ghost up there. Here it is............:-)

A black and white from the other side of the circle......

A stairway leading down to the lower level:

Finally, an exterior look from behind the barn:

This was such a wonderful experience and I am very thankful to the owners for being so kind and allowing us access to their beautiful property.
