O/Alphabe-Thursday

Private OBSERVATORY, Dyers Bay, ONTARIO

How OBSERVANT of you to recognize this is an  OLD photo (well, not really that OLD, just from early last fall). AH! The green leaves and grass gave that away.

I think we can safely say someone who lives in this home is serious about OBSERVING the moon, planets and stars, don't you think?

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

I thought I was already here. I commented about the turrent. How nice to sit there on some level and gaze out over my property. Drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes — back when smoking was fashionable.

Jill said...

How fantastic! I can just imagine sitting in there at night. Wish I could have my own turret!

Jarart said...

Just think of all the star and planet pictures you could take with a big telescope! I would love that!

RedPat said...

It is so nice to see sunmer!

Now that's a real toy for grown-ups! I'm afraid the tower wouldn't fit in my condo, no matter how much I'd like one of my own.

Andy said...

That's so cool.

PS: I'm always learning something from your blog. I had to Google Dyers Bay to find out where it is.

I like the shape of this home. It's unusual.

Lowell said...

This looks familiar. As I recall it's owned by an Italian family, Mr. and Mrs. Galileo.

Lovely house and wonderful turret and beautiful reflections and you really went out of your way to follow the theme! :-)

Carol said...

Oh, what a beautiful place!

Chrissy Brand said...

A fabulous building and it makes me cast an eye on the horizon for warmer days...

I've never seen an observatory on a house before.

Riet said...

What a beautiful house or building. Love the O word

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

How cool would it be to have your own private observatory? Very cool...

Leora said...

I love the shape. I want one of those floors for sitting room or office...

Gabrielle said...

Let's just hope its the moon and stars and not anything else...

George said...

I don't think I've seen anything quite like this. That is quite an observatory for a private home.

edenhills said...

That is amazing for a private home. Great shot.

Lavender Cottage said...

Nice looking building, and colour. Would be interesting if it is a private observatory.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

How cool! My guys would love this.

Stephanie said...

How interesting that they have an observatory in their own home. They are probably quite serious looking at the moon and the stars.

Kathy said...

I can't imagine living in your own observatory. I just hope they're star gazers!

Gillian Olson said...

I'd say someone lived there that was a VERY serious star gazer. Neat looking place.

anitamombanita said...

that's quite some house!

Marie said...

I had a friend whose husband built an observatory in their back yard. They had the most awesome astronomical photos! These people are definitely just as serious! :-) Thanks for your comment on my recent post.

What a beautiful capture of the lovely architecture, and the shadows enhance the loveliness of the compostion.

Emille said...

This is a very classy observatory!

☆☆Mumsy said...

What a neat architecture, and the blue color makes it so pretty!

Rose said...

I certainly would like to observe the inside of that place!

I'd love to be able to walk around the inside of that observatory.

That's a home at which I would like to stay!

Pondside said...

For some reason I think I've been in that area and seen that observatory.
Out here we have the Dominion Observatory, which is quite fabulous.

Jenny said...

Wouldn't it be fabulous to live in a house with a private observatory?

I can't even imagine the riches that family gets to experience whenever they look out the windows!

Thanks for an outstanding link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "O".

A+
