Barn Charm – Bringing Back Memories

A couple of weeks ago, on our trip to Hertford, NC for our friends’ wedding, we passed by this old barn.

Nothing too charming about this one. Just a boring old gray barn.

But when Motor Man pulled over, and I stepped up to the open door…

…childhood memories came flooding back. You may recall that I grew up across the highway from a dairy farm and spent many hours there as a little girl.  This barn appears to be no longer in use, except perhaps for storage. It looks nothing like the one from my childhood, but the interior, with its stalls and “aroma” immediately carried me back to carefree summer days.

Linking up to Barn Charm.
