Six years ago, while on an exploratory scooter trip into the mountains (the kind of trip I now do by bicycle), I came across an abandoned restaurant next to the entrance of an equestrian park.
This abandoned building did appear on my blog once, five and a half years ago in “My Faux-Mat Photoshop Script is Out”, but while other photos from that photogenic outing made it to my blog (here, here, and here), and on that trip I “discovered” the “Middle-of-Nowhere Sokushouji Temple”, posting about this abandoned restaurant has remained on my to-do list.
It came to my mind last week while on a bicycle ride, I came around a curve expecting to find it, but instead I found this:

I shouldn't be surprised, considering the shape of the place six years ago. Let's take a look...

I'd love this for my garden (if I had a garden)

or what was left of it
The problem with the cycling I'm doing now is that it both adds to my “want to post about” workload, but takes away from the time to do it. For the time being, cycling often is winning over posting often. Maybe in the winter it'll flip and I'll get caught up more.
