Inside the Cabin


For those of you who wanted a look inside...

Alas, my shadow is  obscuring the fireplace.

Rosemary and Maythorn would have climbed the ladder to sleep in the loft.

Simplicity . . .

The sticks of the chimney are simply scooped in a shallow depression to lie against each other while the logs of the cabin are joined with dove-tail type notches.

This is a cabin in Cherokee -- in the Oconoluftee Indian Village, Carol.

This is the kind of place I can hold in my minds-eye and 'visit' when I'm stressed. I'll have an old rocking chair there and enjoy the peace. Magical.

My ancestors lived in such cabins, but they weren't Cherokee. Rather, they learned how to build them from the Cherokee and other native Americans. They didn't have structures like that in Scotland or North Ireland. Jim

Good point, Jim!

If only those walls could talk...so steeped in history.Just amazing to me that it is still standing.
