Here is the farm. We got chased out of Northern Virginia by the traffic. We still miss it, but there are advantages to boarding the horses and not having to maintain the farm.

Aerial View

Termineigh Farm Every ten years or so a company would fly around to make aerial views of property. We had purchased an earlier picture, so I turned this one down. When it came time to put the farm on the market, however, I searched them out and bought the image and a copyright release.
We had 11 acres, much of which was in the woods behind the barn and to the right out of the photo.
It was a perfect little farm.
The back patio Patio We never appreciated the house at the farm enough. It had been built by an electrical contractor for his home and was exceptionally well designed and built.
Once we converted it from all-electric baseboard heat to heat-pumps with propane backup, we could even afford to keep it warm in the winter.
It was a great place to have a party.
The blue spruce Blue spruce The relocation company that handled our move from California to the farm gave us a tiny Colorado blue spruce plant as a home-coming gift.
By the time we moved 13 years later it had grown into quite a magnificent tree.
Every Christmas we decked it out with lights. At first it was just one and finally it was several strands. I had to stand on a ladder and use a rake to reach up and position the top lights.
Moving day Moving day Of course it snowed on the day the movers came to load up and take us to Lexington.
The driveway was too narrow and twisty to get a large van in, so they used two smaller ones for the first trip and still had to come back to pick up some leftover items.
It was a bittersweet time, but we love Lexington and we definitely don't miss the traffic.
The "annex" 305 New Cameron We jokingly call our new place the Termineigh Farm Annex.
We love the neighborhood and the neighbors. It's nice to be 15 minutes from everything (except the horses - they are 20 minutes).
Jim still misses the tractor, though.
