Weekends are the only time I have to complete the challenge. During the week I am busy at work and my daily commute and family matters give me very little time for photography in the morning and afternoon.

Today I had planned a trip to Sea Girt to photograph the lighthouse. However, after breakfast, I checked the weather and decided to do it another day. The air temperature was 0ºC. Brr.

After breakfast, I grabbed my Nikon D5100 and my Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 wide-angle and drove over to the Dirck Gulick House.

The Dirck Gulick House, also known just as the Gulick House, was built in 1752 and has been serving as the Society’s headquarters, library, archives, and research facility since 2004. The building conforms to the Dutch style of the 18th century in its story-and-a-half height, double room depth, and use of heavy timber running from the front to back walls. What is rare is its use of stone for building material. This building was added to the State and National Registers of historic Places in late 2003 after the completion of major restoration.Van Harlingen Historical Society

The house is a Dutch-style stone structure made from stones from the Sourland Mountain Range. The one-story house has segmented arches of stone above the doors and windows, as well as two front entrances. I have no idea why anyone would build two doors to a home.
