At one point during our explorations, Tom and I found ourselves in an abandoned bowling alley. Wouldn't it be fun to work in a place where they had a bowling alley on site!? I was really tempted to pick up one of the balls and roll it down the lane but I can't imagine how noisy that would have been in the silence of that room.

Last night and this morning is finally bringing some much need rain to the area. And much cooler temperatures too! I'm taking advantage of the rainy day and staying in to do some much procrastinated sewing, laundry and rewatching last night's episode of Mad Men (so good!). I'm also cooking up a big crockpot of potato and broccoli soup. Yummm!

i just don't understand... do you live in an abandoned town? you always find the best places with the perfect amount torn wallpaper and rust.

I am in awe of how you find these places! Do you ever get scared of wandering around in abandoned places? I hesitate to because I'm afraid of things breaking or discovering animals or getting caught for trespassing. I'd like to be more adventurous though with my photo locations, and you inspire me!
