ramshackle charm

After an unseasonably hot and humid summer,
we've been blessed with some really great weather!
The perfect way to end a summer -
and we've been taking advantage by getting out on our bikes!

Among our many photo stops this past weekend, was this ramshackle beauty.

I suspect it has seen better days

But it sure is in a pretty setting!

Thanks for dropping in!


  1. it's a beauty! the pine trees are gorgeous, sweeping in, too!

  2. It's wonderful! I'd love to poke around there.

  3. This is a beauty. It is so heartbreaking to see these beautiful old structures falling into disrepair. We have lots of them in our county. What is really special about this one is its setting. What a gorgeous spot. genie

  4. Great captures of this old barn. Love all those old pine trees that frame the barn.

  5. It appears to be pulling apart in some areas and drooping down.
    It probably can't be saved but having that view would be wonderful to rebuilt a home on. :)

    Your bike rides take you through some lovely spots.

  6. It's a lovely barn in a beautiful setting, but sad to see it crumbling in on itself.

  7. The ad look sure does add character. :))

  8. Ramshackle describes it well - it's charming too!

  9. Karen,
    I love how you always find neat stuff to take pictures of when you're out biking. I don't think my husband would ever let me stop to do that on our rides. :o) Anyway, I do like that barn.

  10. I love this poor decrepit barn. Great capture!

  11. poor thing looks like it's going to split right down the middle....beautiful though!

  12. Most definitely a beautiful setting in the trees & mountains in the background! Beautiful!

    Thanks so much for joining, Karen! =)

  13. A beauty indeed. It deserves a beautiful setting.
