I didn't get closer due to unfriendly people. I seldom have trouble with people but this was not a lucky day I guess. It wasn't even a property owner just someone who drove by and decided to be troublesome.
The Green House 1228138410 Can you see the praying mantis? There were several of them around this yard.

It seemed to be the wreckage after a fire. Hopefully the owners were all OK and had the insurance to enable them to rebuild. I think this was outside of Shelbourne.  (My spelling of the town name may be wrong).  
There are a string of these little houses outside of Cookstown, sort of on the way to Beeton. Likely you have seen them if you travel in the area. The surprising thing is that people do sometimes still live in some of them. I found out while taking photos one day. I still pass by them but haven't gone for another round of photographing them.

All of these are gone now. They made room for new homes in lines like hungry caterpillars. Tobacco Sheds 2 510527493 Tobacco Sheds 1 510527669 Tobacco Shed 4 510506402 Tobacco Shed 3 510506490

It looked like the ruins of an old castle still standing hundreds of years later. But, it was just a house. Likely destroyed by fire. The cows were oddly intimidating. Or was it just because there were a couple of bulls there too. I don't trust animals, or think of them as friendly pets at least. So I was careful exploring here. It took some daring for me to get into the area where the cows were kept.
Farm House Outside Lindsay 946745915 Farm House Outside Lindsay 946754963 Farm House Outside Lindsay 947572828 Farm House Outside Lindsay 947594980 Farm House Outside Lindsay Front and Side 947586726 Farm House Outside Lindsay Front Door 946734061I should have begun posting my photos on a site years ago. I forget this house. I don't remember the story behind finding or walking around it. My note says it is a house outside of Lindsay.
I've made a screen capture of the original post because I'd like more people to understand what exploring is about. Comments are already closed on The Star website but this will link to my own post and my comments are there. Mostly, I like to keep something like this from disappearing into deep, dark archives no one knows to look for.
