Once one has determined the best way to open the wooden gate,( a very neat version of split rail fencing, I think) without breaking it (the top cross rail is already chipped at the nail and will dangle unattached if handled incorrectly), a series of flat slate stones are laid in the ground as some sort of non-uniform walk way.  The stones are set in a way that it is obvious they are meant to be walked on but the variance is sizes and kooky placement make them impractical.  There is a larger, flatter irregular slab of slate at the foot of the steps to the cabin’s tiny front porch.

I forgot to mention a couple of things on the way down the hill to the front gate of Black Cat Cabin’s yard: About four fifths of the way from the parking spot to the gate stands what looks like the remains of a flagstone well.  It is about three feet tall and marked by a set of loose flat slate stones set in a square shape rather than the traditional round shape for a well.

Running late- more tomorrow….
