We approached the place with caution, as we do many of the abandoned places we come across. We were able to get inside the wood building which appeared to have been a storage or laundry room. She touched a pipe and got a reading while I took pictures. Outside the door was cement stairs leading up to the apartments. We got almost to the top when Sharon heard buzzing. We noticed a huge beehive under the rotting boards of the porches ceiling. Since we did not want to get stung, we took pictures from the stairs and then left.
A year later, we returned to take more pictures and check on the bees. They were still there and the hive was much bigger. Last week, two years later, we want to photograph some of the places we have already took shots of to see how much they have changed. To our surprise, the bees and hive were still there. We were sure the weight of the hive would drop through the ever rotting boards, but that hasn't happened yet. So, our Bee Apartments are still standing along with the sounds of buzzing bees. I was able to get more pictures. The place is basically the same, just looking more worn out with time.
