Want to go glamping? What better way to experience the wild than ensconced safely in a cool mid-century modern style A-frame cabin ? Far meadow is 14 miles above Bass Lake in the Sierra National Forest, close to Yosemite National Park. It sits on 20 acres of private land, surrounded by a beautiful meadows and streams. There are two A-frames available to rent at $275 per night, each sleeping 2-4 with a sleeping loft. A friend and I were going to book their vintage trailer "lodge" where you get two trailers in which to sleep, cook, and hang out, but were not able to get it together. The trailers are not currently listed on the Far Meadows site, but it was a great idea, I've included photos anyway. Bring your dog, it's allowed!
And now for some vintage bikes. Raleigh is one of the oldest bicycle companies in the world, very British, established in 1887 in Raleigh Street, Nottingham. On the short list of bicycles I still want to own are their Twenty folder and the Lady Sport, both of which are thought to be very solid choices for a vintage bike purchase. If you watch "Downton Abbey" or "Call the Midwife", chances are you've seen a character riding a Raleigh. Here are a few nice ones. They can still be found on eBay and other second-hand markets.
The Sydney, Australia home of Sophie Tatlow & Bruce Slorach. I love the slate floor, the plant on the painted brick wall, and of course, the bicycle.
