Gwynn’s Island Majesty

This house. THIS HOUSE! JUST LOOK AT IT! Surrounded by the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay, it’s everything I love in a big, old house. A little rough around the edges (there’s that word we love: “potential!”) but still steeped in old-fashioned grandeur.
 
Earlier this month I was in a bookstore and passed by a book called Life Would be Perfect If I Lived in That House. Oh, if I only had a nickel…
