So last night I had to drive the the Overlook Mansion in Little Falls. I had never been there, but I figured I could find it. Little Falls isn’t that big, is it? Silly me. I forgot how talented I am at getting lost.
Before leaving, I went to the Overlook’s Facebook page and clicked on About. That showed me a map, which I also clicked on. I typed in a couple of different starting places and studied the lines the map showed me. I asked Steven to write down “Ann Street to Monroe to Lewis to Douglas.” 55 Douglas is the address. Steven wrote it on his pad of paper with a picture of Underdog on it. “There’s no need to fear! Underdog is here!” I set out.
Finding Ann Street was easy enough. I looked for Monroe. Soon I was running out of Ann. Ah, Ann ends making a T with Monroe. Naturally I had not made a note of which direction to turn. Still, I had a 50/50 chance of being right. Uh, of being correct. But I did turn right. And kept looking for Lewis. As the road went up, I thought I must have chosen the correct direction. Would not a place called Overlook be on top of a hill? Soon I was driving out of town. Oh dear.
At least it was a scenic road to be lost on. I enjoyed the beautiful views of farmland and mountains. You can see for MILES! I especially enjoyed the blues and greys of the cloudy sky as the sun set and it turned to dusk. I finally turned around in somebody’s driveway and headed back to Little Falls.
At last I found Lewis. Phew! And the road started up again. Silly me, it is a mountainous area. Almost any direction is bound to go up eventually. And there was Douglas. Soon I was driving up the driveway to the Overlook. It is a narrow road surrounded by trees. I found it a little spooky, which is a quality I enjoy in a road. And there was the Overlook.
What a place! I think I’m in love! I must, I positively must learn how to add photos. I’ll write more about the place in future posts. In the meantime, you can go to their website, http://overlookmansion.com/mansion/, or Facebook page.
