Casa Bonita sits on 100 acres of rolling forest in the heart of the Hockley Valley. All the stones used in it's construction were dug from this land by the owner's mother. She was aided only by a cart and a donkey. It is now the home of a dear friend and, while I live in Toronto, it is my refuge from the vast and sprawling city. Good food, bad television and long walks are what we share here.
This was my home when I learned my grandmother had passed away.
