Nancy, they are very cool. I can so imagine having my own yurt and escaping from every thing just to be there near a lake and forest and write. Lake Tahoe in California, or in Scotland near Loch Ness, Ireland where the dark Mournes sweep down to the sea, so many places around the world that would be very spiritual for me.

In my fantasy, I have a beautiful home, perfect for a B&B, with 10 Yurts on the grounds (yep, that's a lot of land). The Yurts are rented out as rooms to my B&B guests and when the guests are few, I can use one as my retreat and writing lab.
