HAHA!!!!!!!! That is priceless. (And I love your tiles!)
Fake tiles. It's vinyl wallpaper. We've been meaning to rip the whole toilet and bathroom area out and put new ones in because whats there is so shabby but you know, money and priorities and all that.I noticed the tiles, too. They’re rather FotoDa-ish.
Roots yes. It's a steep foot path up a hill and also one of the lowest points so a run off for water when it rains. The roots give the path stability but still get undercut somewhat. Further down the hill where there are fewer trees the path is often washed down to bedrock. Not a s pretty as roots.Look at those roots? Incredible.
I still remember those days when we were hanging at the windows and waited for hard rain and afterwards grabbed out toy boats to let them swim! Those were the days... sight
