The house was sited at about 3100 ft. and commanded a marvelous view of the woods down to the Lake Winnipesauke of which he owned 2000ft. of frontage. Of course, at this time of the year, the scenery was pretty breathtaking with autumn colors. The visit to the mansion included a visit to the springs which are on the 5000 acres as well as a bottling company which sells Castle Springs water in the Northeast and the Caribbean. There are also a rainbow trout pond where you can feed the lovely fish and see exactly why they are called “ rainbows. ” There is also Kentucky-like section with white fences and horses behind them. It was an interesting visit and we enjoyed our lunch there too. Getting back to the cottage around three, we relaxed and read and chatted. The weather remained chilly and unpleasant all day. Our supper was appropriately “ comfort food ”— spaghetti with meatballs and sausage. Then we started watching our favorite Thursday night TV. Now it ’ s about 10:30 PM and we are getting ready for beddies in a little while. We did get our laundry done this evening as well. Another very pleasant and relaxing day.
