Just 1.5 hours south east from Rochester, the vista becomes wide open sky and gently rolling hills, not a car in sight…that’s where i spent my afternoon searching for land for a summer house we want to build, closer to NYC and in the middle of nowhere….the nearest town is Georgetown, a crossroad…a spit of dirt road with a backyard flavor of life long forgotten…

Grapes and gourds
