If you didn't know, the camera lies.


You might think from the first couple of pictures
that this was an idyllic rural setting; and the landlord,
with his roses and obsessive gardening, does his best,
including supplying the wrought-iron (and bolted down)
chair for the front porch, or smoking lounge.

But then comes the view from the front door,
across and then up the street, and a couple of
shots towards the downtown, which is only two
blocks away. I took these on a weekend, the only
time parking is not a major problem. Still, do it
once and you can avoid doing it again for days.
