So nice to see a blog post, since I am not on any of the social media listed above! I'm so out of touch I did not even know there was a new Urban Oasis in Ann Arbor. This is a charming house, and my favorite space is that screened-in porch. I need to check out all of the other videos and photos now. Thanks, Virginia, for remembering those of us who are less socially plugged in!

Did I miss Round Three? I thought I'd better ask, because advancing age has me forgetting what day or even what week it is on a far too frequent basis. I'm afraid I suffer from this disorder:

Such fascinating choices! I do feel the need to speak up about the aquarium/terrarium option. I love and have both, but must say that I have had aquariums spring a leak before, and all of that water spilling out can be quite damaging to floors. The worst that can happen to a terrarium is that the plants will die. Even so, I would be happy to have either one (or both!).

Hello, Alice and Soney! Good find about the colors! North Carolina would also fit with mwb's brilliant guess that the "right direction" to which Virginia refers means "east" on that giant compass. It's still early days, though, so the exact location could be anywhere.

The weather is mild here in Georgia as well. Our forsythia has been blooming for weeks, and the daffodils now have buds. The robins have already passed through here as they head north, and they are at least a couple of weeks early. We are all well in our neck of the woods, and I hope you and Soney are also!

Good point (as in "compass point")! I think you may be right (as in "correct")!

The photo looks familiar because it is a shot from the master bedroom in the 2015 Urban Oasis in Asheville. NC:

I wonder if the 2015 Urban Oasis location is the clue? Are we going to North Carolina? Of course, if the antique compass is the clue we could be headed in any direction!

I'm sure you can do it, Coop! Just don't look down, remember that the first step is a real doozy!

For those interested in the fauna of the area, check out this site with 27 pages of wildlife photos from nearby Alligator Point (less than 20 minutes south of Panacea):

For a closer look click on one of the photos on a page to start the slide show. Most of the images are of birds, with the occasional baby bear, monkey (!), etc. thrown in. This place is a birder's paradise! As a casual birder, I could add a number of new species to my life list.

Wow, great house! I love the exterior, even though it needs some maintenance, but the interior is dated and could sure use a good remodel. I can't wait to see what the Blog Cabin team can do for this place. I've been threatening to visit a good friend in Tallahassee so we can take a trip to Apalachicola, and early 2016 would be the perfect time. I wonder if the Blog Cabin team will give us a tour if we stop by on our way? What do you say, guys and gals?
