You're right. I'd say it's just far enough from the coast to avoid the hordes, and near pleasant towns like Alès, Nîmes, Arles and Montpellier.

Saint-Hippolyte-du-Fort.

Blurb translated:
Perfectly served by 3 airports and fast roads. A unique 14th century village house, full of character and original elements, tastefully renovated with original style and materials. Comfortably spacious rooms, high ceilings nearly 5m high, 2 lounges, 3 bathrooms, including 2 en suite. 4 bedrooms. Gallery and 2 workshops on the ground floor, perfect for other galleries or workspaces. Other small spaces, stone staircase, large garage to renovate and roof terrace possible. Dome offering an extraordinary light in the staircase. Terrace and summer dining room/studio. Garden planted with fig trees and water. Garage for 2 cars. A few minutes from the village shops and 2 weekly markets. 40 minutes from Nîmes or Montpellier airports. 90 minutes from Marseille airport. 35 minutes from a Tgv station. 45 minutes from the Mediterranean Sea. This house has appeared in several magazines specialized in interiors. The owner is an author on the interiors. A must see to be appreciated. The work was carried out by interior architects and the rooms were designed according to the light. Some large pieces of furniture can be purchased with the house.

Makes you wonder if there will be any modern structures left behind 2000 years from now. I would say probably not. We don't build things out of stone anymore, and concrete crumbles to dust in less than a century without constant repair. Forget anything made of metal or wood. Our legacy will be micro plastics and caffeine.

Our lasting legacy will be radioactive, but this belongs in a different thread.

Just ignore me please, I'm just a little blue about having to go back to that goddamned fucking job tomorrow morning. :)

And the first thing on the agenda tomorrow morning is a meeting with my micro-managing idiot boss. I'll have to show up early just to get that first cup of Earl Grey going. What nonsense! :) Then I'll have to deal with all the other fucking idiots "who have been doing this a long time" (their one and only job in the business for less than 15 years) and attempt to teach them what they should have learned a decade ago. All because idiot boss wants to report progress back to the COO so he can continue to get that fucking bonus. This is madness. And I've had enough of it.

"First goddamned week of winter."

"I know you gentlemen have been under a great deal of stress lately, but if it's not too much to ask, I do not want to spend the rest of the winter TIED TO THIS FUCKING COUCH!"

Fuck.

1. Waiting for other estimations.
2. Originally a train viaduct. France was covered with small railway lines before… TGV.





A nice place for Bruce, Prince Leopold Island:

I'm actually surprised that no one has painted it yet, or put up a advert that can be seen from Google Earth.

It was Broadway Tower, Cotswolds:



Built end of the 18th c. for Lady Coventry, who wanted to know if a beacon on this hill could be seen from her house in Coventry, 22 miles (<— that's for ed or he will freak out) away. It could. :coolspecs:

The life of a light housekeeper is always lonely, but for sixty years those who served the Stannard Rock Light in Lake Superior, it was extraordinarily so. Known as “the loneliest place in the world”, the Stannard Rock Light is located in the northern half of Lake Superior, off Keweenaw Peninsula. The nearest land, Manitou Island, is situated about 40 km to the northwest, making it the most distant lighthouse in the United States, and probably the entire world.

It does, but since it slowly spins, there's only a three-minute window four times a day for doing one's businesss.

I may be making that up.

Nothing wrong with a educated guess.

Or an uneducated one for that matter.
