A Florida Country Road

I took a little road I had never been on the other day and saw some pretty sights.

Lots of FENCES!

We don’t see as many chain link fences here so this was interesting.

And there were several pretty gates and decorative horses here and there.

These were all taken on a 1 mile stretch of this road.

I may need to go back down that road again to take more photos.

Or at least to feed the donkey.

You just never know what you’ll see when you take the road less traveled.

(this horse is not real! lol)

I’m joining Tex for the

Good Fences party.

Sometimes taking the wrong road pays off. It did in your case.

carolann said...

You are sure enthusiastic in getting beautiful pictures but I presume in your areas of travels you see lots as you show. Not in mine unfortunately.

Susan said...

Looks like a serene drive! Happy Thanksgiving, Sis

Well worth the detour! A lovely stretch of road with lots to see & fences to photograph!
Have a lovely day!

Stacey said...

Very pretty. I always wonder when I see those tall chain link fences just what they are trying to keep in or out. Sometimes they are game hunting places which makes me sad.

Ida said...

What a pleasant surprise drive you took. You found some great fences and lovely horse statues as well. It would be worth going back again.

TexWisGirl said...

Following that unknown road is always a neat little adventure. It's fun to see new things!

Rose said...

Beautiful scenes....I love the way the fences follow the curve of the road in some of the shots.

You live in such a pretty area! And I used to love to get out and take a road I'd never driven. Haven't done that in far too long!

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Love the horse photos and that last one sure does look real. Beautiful country. I just adore finding roads we haven't been on. Enjoy the coming week my friend.

BeachGypsy said...

Hi Diane! If Id known we were that close to yall and in your neck of the woods...I wouldve loved to have met up with yall! You have such a beautful state!

Pamela Gordon said...

You found lots of interesting 'horses' on that road along with some great fences too. Have a good weekend Diane!

Beautiful scenes, Diane! I love the photo with the curve of fence and curve in the road.

Fun photos :-)

Linda Walker said...

Hi Diane,
I'm popping in for a quick hello. Looking forward to having more time to check out what I have missed. (as I see your cute little doll in her red polka dot outfit) Will be back for sure.

You took some pretty pictures for sure. In one of them it looks as though the leaves have turned a little. Does that happen in Florida or are my eyes deceiving me?

Thanks for you lovely email. I miss you my friend. Trying to get back in the swing of things....lost so much time.

I've been enjoying your doll clothes sessions with JoAnn! You are both so talented!
