Texas Castle on the Prairie...for Monday's Country Backroads

 
From reading my blog,
 you know how much I talk about the country back roads...
they never disappoint me.
 
Today is not the first time to see this real-life castle.
 
It is located on one of my most often traveled back roads.
 The road leads to a wonderful small town about 14 miles away from the bungalow.
Usually the foliage hides all but the very tallest part of the castle.
 
If you might be wondering...
it is a private home.
 
 
So you might get a sense of how far away I took these photos,
here is where I am standing.
 
Since taking these photos, I have learned the name of the family.
How delightful it would be, to get an invite for afternoon tea?
No doubt, I would be bringing my camera!
 
Monday is off to a great start....
Enjoy your week.

Culloden Moor Stone Wall for Friday Fences

 
While planning another trip to Scotland,
 I came across my old photos
 from the Battlefield of Culloden.

This is a significant fence photo, to share with you, my dear readers.
 
 
Visiting the Culloden Battlefield
 was the most emotional day of my stay in Scotland.
The thought of what I saw,
still evokes feelings that are hard for me to comprehend.
 
 
You hold back the tears and choke back the tightness in your throat,
as you walk the moor.
 Knowing what actually happened on the land where you are standing,
you talk in whispers with long periods of silence.
 
 
For those of you reading this post,
 all I can say is... much has been written about that fateful day.

Bungalow Renovations Continue.....

 
The Bungalow renovations are proving to be more challenging
 than first thought.
 
Isn't that the way it always is when re-doing an older home?

Duck Hunting.... for Monday's Country Backroads

 
My favorite way to hunt....
with a camera.
 
To tell you the truth,
 I had no idea I would find the Red Head Ducks,
 that have migrated here for the winter.
 
 
As you can see, I was not close to the pond.
And, as soon as I stepped out of the truck,
 they were alert to my every movement.
 
 
 
 Having enough of my camera,
 one of the males turned,
 and swam away....
 
It's the beginning of another glorious week.
Enjoy it !!

Weathered Cattle Chute for Friday Fences...

 
I get very excited when I find something like this...
looking a little tired,
 but still a very usable cattle chute.
 
 
Maybe a bunkhouse or just an overnight cabin...
a place for ranch hands to stay,
while waiting for the cattle truck to arrive.
 
 
Would you not agree...
a wonderful place to take photographs.
