My Dad built this house from a water tower he bought for $300 in Westchester. He took it apart and reassembled it in northern Monmouth Maine. It was our summer house since I was 3 years old. You can see the water tower there in the middle.
I would spend 3 months a year in Maine and the rest of my time in Brooklyn. At the time it was very untraditional to live in a round house. People would stop their cars in amazement and watch us eat in the living room.
My parents now permanently live in Maine. I went up to spend time with them. Here are some pictures from my trip.
This is inside one of the additions to the water tower.
A frozen lake near our home that I was waking on.
These are wild turkeys that were introduced to Maine 10 years ago. They have completely taken over.
This is my Mom.
This is my Dad. He and my Mom are one of the most extraordinary couples I know.
My Dad is very proud of being an individual. One example is his ability to take something unwanted and find a use for it. Here he found a wheel barrel at the dump and repaired it. He makes me smile.
This is a back road near my house.
