Many homes in Marathon have an old "shed" cobbled together with wood and scraps of tin.
The Blas Payne shed is surrounded by heirloom roses and native shrubs. You will see butterflies and humming birds visit.
In the morning you will hear the windmill turning, the roosters crowing, and the birds singing.
The skies are so dark in Marathon. You will
see stars you've not seen before, the Milky Way
seems to cover the sky, and nature often shares
a "light show" with my guests.
