11 Farmington Court - my home from age 7 through college. My parents built the house.
11 Farmington Court. That pink brick was custom made for us. Not holding up well to the test of time...
11 Farmington Court
The 11 is still on the side of the door!
These were the windows of my bedroom. Debbie was in the back of the house, with our rooms connected by a jack-and-jill bath. Dean was down the hall.
Dad planted these trees to provide a little privacy from the next door neighbors. Now they are way taller than the house!
Our fence was wood, but now there's a nice brick wall protecting the pool.
Garage and entrance to side yard.
Cherry trees are much more mature than I remember, and they were in full bloom.
This was the Princes' house. They would give any child 5 cents if we would come by and walk their dogs Napoleon (dachshund) and Josephine (airedale). It was good money back in the day!
Meadowbrook Stables - where we rode, and Debbie eventually worked.
All Saints Episcopal Church in Chevy Chase - my childhood church home.
All Saints Episcopal Church in Chevy Chase - it was much darker and more gothic than I remembered!
All Saints Episcopal Church in Chevy Chase - my childhood church home. The stained glass was exquisite.
Smaller chapel off to the side of the main sanctuary
The rood. It has moved me mightily for as long as I can remember.
View of the church from the center of Chevy Chase Circle.
I have so many memories of talking with friends - or waiting for my parents to finish talking with their friends - outside this entrance!
The house I lived in from age 2 until age 7. A lovely split-level ranch in Bethesda. It was red brick when I lived there.
Another view of 6519 Elgin Lane. I met the owner, who was very nice.
