My neck of the woods

April 28, 2014

Today is such a beautiful day to go out for a nice long walk.
So I grabbed a bottle of water and my cell phone just to have on hand.
While walking I decided to take some photos with my phone so I could
share all the great barns and interesting sites in my neck of the woods.

This first barn is across the road from ours.

Up the road and around the bend sits this big beautiful house 
that once served as a hospital during the Revolutionary War.

On the top floor of their barn was where the wounded soldiers 
laid before entering the hospital. 

This is the other section of the barn.

And another view.

Across from the barn is a small cemetery for soldiers that have been
found and laid to rest. 

Each flag is in honor of the soldier buried there.

Looks like they're in the works of restoring their Spring house.

Walking down the road and around the bend was once a sheep farm but no sheep to be found today.
I know the owner was up in years, so perhaps he is no longer raising sheep.

A little bit of a distance more I'm back to my home and barn.

Thanks so much for stopping by and strolling along with me!!

Enjoy your day!
xoxo Louise
