Took a walk down the beach from where I live. Sure enough the old cabin is still there and surprisingly enough it hasn't been vandalized since the old couple moved away nearly 15 years ago. Their failing health simply wouldn't allow them to continue in this peaceful secluded place.
Not one pane of glass was broken as far as I could see though several had fallen out of their moldings over time leaving a way for the elements to get in.
I recall my visits with this interesting old couple when I was a younger man. He would talk about how it used to be here in the inlet and She always had something for us to munch on as we drank our coffee made on the wood fired cook stove "the way it was supposed to be"!
Now days there are only memories, the echo of laughter and perhaps a faint smell of wood smoke and coffee in the little old cabin by the sea.
