away for the weekend: fridays fences

fridays fences

After finally digging out from the storm and Greg making it home,
we managed to get away for our week of planned vacation.
We only lost a couple days to the storm - oh well, such is life.

Anyway - I thought I had set up all my posts for the week
(no internet at Away)
but, well, I was wrong. 
So, this morning after a couple days of skiing and some snowshoe adventures,
these tired legs are taking a break at our favorite coffee shop
(yeah - coffee, conversation, and wifi!!)

This fence is somewhere near Landgrove, Vermont - last November.

It's a pretty typical post and rail in a very pretty park.

And then - because you know how I love to play -

I can't remember if I used sketch or colored pencil - but I kind of like it.

Today we're off to explore some (hopefully) historic sites of Vermont -
and a smoked meats shop that we pass every week but have never stopped in.
Curiosity has finally gotten the better of us.

Linking with Jan and Jer for Fridays Fences

  9. Hi, there!
    Thanks for visiting and commenting. Love your fence shot; funny how "Friday's Fences" makes us take note of something as mundane as a fence!
    We were in Vermont at the end of December - went to Townshend to go sleigh riding. I'll have to check a map to see where Landgrove is.
    Have fun!
