Friday Fences

We see all kinds of fences when we hike.

(you’ll have to look close to see this one)

One of my favorites is the entrance onto a trail.

And look at this dilapidated fence around an old structure that we saw on the Pruitt Trailhead of Halpata Tastanaki  Preserve.

Time to park under a tree and have a picnic!

Hiking is always an adventure!

Is that the trail marker laying on the ground?

Which way do we go? lol

Isn't Tex's comment interesting. I was thinking the same thing, Diane. And I love fences and paths too. :-)

I really like the olden days wooden fences the best...they have so much more character!

Vee said...

What do you mean no view? I'm telling you, if I come down there and you call in a hog, I'll be running so fast. I mean waddling so fast!

podso said...

I like your rustic fences. I think I need to see the country part of Florida more; we are usually in town or near the beach and don't think of hiking in woods! I enjoyed your gathering the moments post too!

Debbie Moss said...

Thanks for the nice comment! Wishing you a lovely weekend too! :)

Your fences are wonderful. I need more fences here because I've got two vines that are taking off 'cross country because they have nothing to climb. DH refuses to let them climb on the house!

You're in God's country!!
That little shed - a place for the animals to hang out in case of bad storms?? An old hunting spot?? Funny

Don't you know that when a trail marker is laying down that means "Lay down and take a nap?" LOL. xo

Beautiful Old Florida -- the real Florida! (I hate when marker signs fall down -- I can get lost in a closet.)

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

I always wonder how old these fences are, who put them there, and why. Thanks for sharing Diane.

eileeninmd said...

Great series on the rustic fences and the old shack. It is bad when the trail marker is laying on the ground..Thanks for sharing, have a happy weekend!

koralee said...

Lovely images...old fences are something like old barns...you just got to photograph them. I love them both! Happy weekend!

So pretty. xoxo I love wooden fences, but they are rare here, due to the dry heat; instead, there are walls.

Lorrie said...

Love the fence photos. The one surrounding the abandoned structure has a story to tell, I think.

Raggedy Creations said...

great fence captures. The first one you can hardly see in there all grown over.

Linda Walker said...

I love rustic fences too...I also love coming upon old stone walls or foundations in the woods. Looks like you have had some nice walks! Enjoy the weekend,

Sewwhat!

I have seen some pretty cool fences while hiking, but never took pictures.

NanaDiana said...

I LOVE that third one down with the old outbuilding. Some great pictures here, Diane- xo Diana

I love weathered gray fences and hiking too!
It is so beautiful and green there. Hot, too?

Chel C said...

I love old gnarled fences that would not do much good, but make a fantastic photo! Have a wonderful weekend. xx

LANA said...

There is something so romantic about an old weathered post and rail fence.I guess you found your way home ok since you did this post, haha

jan said...

We hike the VanFleet trail here in Polk Co, FL. It's SO beautiful. My daughter gets on her bike with her 2 kids behind her in a trailer and off they go. It's not far from my house. Have fun hiking.

Diane Writes said...

Hiking is indeed fun! I love the challenge of the trek (it counts as exercise needed for my weight loss haha) and best of everything, you don't feel the exhaustion because of the wonderful scenery everywhere.

Great post namemate! Have a great day!

Oh, you are a fence lover too? You see so many wonderful things on your hikes, Diane. And it's a treat for me to share them with you. I love how you find beauty in ordinary things. That's so great of you.
