Just off the road leading to Sandbank down New Point sits the former Horn Harbor Nursing Home. Although I'd heard of the nursing home, I'd never been there before and was startled to see its condition. In spite of its state of disrepair, the nursing home facade has many photogenic features.
Almost all the windows are framed by weeds and vines.
This lonely old ladder leans lifelessly against the exterior.
The building struggles to look alive even as dead weeds choke it out.
There's all sorts of graffiti on the inside.
(Not that I went inside or anything.)
(Well, maaaaaybe I was in there for just the quickest second or two to take this picture. It's hard to say for sure.)
Just down the way from this nursing home lives a flock of domesticated geese that look exactly like Killer Goose Gustav. I was so shocked at the sight of that many Gustavs concentrated in one area, that I lost all my wits and failed to take a photo of them. But rest assured there were Gustavs comin' at me from every which way.
I'm thinking the next time ol' Gustav gets loose and swims up Queens Creek, I'll point him in the direction of Horn Harbor rather than risk life and limb trying to herd him back home to my parents' house next door.
