‘Equestrian Springs’ for Good Fences

This is a beautiful gated community near us with an amazing entrance.

The gate was closed to visitors so I got out and took a few photos.

(while hubby waited in the get away car, lol)

Let’s see what’s inside the gate.

Time to make like a tree and leave.

Wow - love that statue and fountain - what a glorious area to visit. Don and I are having a little quiet this afternoon, a little nap, a little lunch - while the kids are out and about visiting. Nice to have a little time to recuperate - hee hee. Back to having fun - plus the air conditioner is installed and we are super comfy.

Just now reading "my blogs' Diane and what beautiful photographs. I was out most of the day running errands but now I am in my favorite chair, visiting my favorite people.

Vee said...

Wow! You were brave! I'd have been on the floor in the backseat. LOL! Beautiful statue and display!

(I am not really as excitable as I seemed in that last post. I say the exclamation marks soaring away like arrows and could not believe I had used that many. =/ O dear... )

Margaret Adamson said...

I was with you all the way and you got great shots.

Jen @ The Light Laughed said...

That's gorgeous, and the fountain is out of this world isnt't it? I guess they don't have water restrictions like they do in California...wonder if the gate keeper person sees a lot of stop and take a photo vehicles, and tally's them up?

I would have had my camera sticking through the gate like a kid with their nose pressed up to the window of the candy store too! LOL.

Dewena said...

What a beautiful place! I wonder if the residents are able to keep horses on their lots?

Ooooooo does the neighborhood have a stables, or are there little mini farms in there? My girls would love to live in a neighborhood like that!

This is a fun fence post.
