It was amazing!
Leena's reaction to the house summed it up perfectly: "It's like a fairy tale house!"
And it was! It was cozy and perfect, the fruit of decades of loving care from one (very handy!) family dedicated to making this a place of happy memories.
It was the perfect place to relax!
It was also surrounded by incredible natural beauty: perched on a steep hill overlooking a lovely winding river.
And there was a boat!
A nice flat bottomed boat since the river here was only 1-2 feet deep with a lazy current (in case you are my dad and wondering why the kids aren't wearing life jackets).
This is actually a picture Oob took of Choclo sleeping because he was sure Choclo would want to know what he looked like when he was asleep.
The answer in Choclo's case is: sweet!
I think I remember wondering the same thing as a kid!
