Scenery Along The Way To……

…our anniversary celebration! As mentioned in Friday’s post, Motor Man and I celebrated an anniversary Saturday.  So we took a little trip, and I’ll tell you where in Wednesday’s post.

But, today, I’m sharing some photos of the scenery along the way to our destination.

The fog at sunrise gave us many opportunities for photos. You may recall that I love old barns. I miss the old blog meme “Barn Charm”, where we shared a photo of a barn each week.

Growing up across the highway from a dairy farm makes cows somewhat special to me. (Whenever I’m taking a picture of cows and strangers are around, I laugh when I realize they’re probably thinking I’ve never seen cows before…)

Contrails at sunrise always add a little something extra to a picture.

The fog changed so quickly, we could almost see it happening right before our eyes.

The sun rising over an old barn: what’s not to love?

And later in the day, we drove by this sweet old church.  Can you imagine all that those walls have seen through the years:  the sound of those beautiful old hymns, the joy of weddings, baptisms and souls saved? And, sadly, the funerals, too.

And even later in the day, another gorgeous old barn, this one with a blue-sky background.

So, obviously, we went somewhere COLD for our anniversary. Some of my readers already know where, and others are probably able to guess how we celebrated.

Tune in Wednesday!

  2. Those are some of the most beautiful pictures I have seen today. Cold can be beautiful if I don’t have to be in it! Cant wait to see your Wednesday post!

  3. What beautiful pictures! And I do the same things with churches and other special buildings – especially an old home I see decaying – wondering the stories the walls have to tell. Thanks for taking us along for the ride.

  4. Some amazing barn pictures! Thanks for sharing.

    I love all your snowy barn pictures but I have to admit the church is my favorite. You know my time for old churches . Waiting breathlessly for Wednesday.

  7. Those are beautiful photos. I understand about the cows. When my wife and I first moved in together in 1999, we rented a small house on a property with about 20 cows. Part of the rental agreement was that we feed the cows and keep water out for them. I soon discovered that feeding cows is dangerous because they get excited and rambunctious. I almost got kicked in the face once. I learned to get out before sunrise while the cows were still out in the fields.

  8. I remember well when you used the barn meme and so enjoyed those photos, but these are great too!

  9. Happy anniversary and I LOVE these pics!
