out and about

I've been driving around a lot lately, back on the way back roads, and I've been seeing some wonderful things:

I don't think I ever saw that windmill. I used to do a lot of driving along the back roads near the south shore at one time.

Your photos make me miss Canada.

I love that bell. Do you know what it's from?

I've never seen that windmill either. Where is it?
Cheers, Shelagh

Seeing nice things in the winter softens the edge of it eh!

Witchypoo, Shelagh - It's about a half-kilometer off of the 103, on Italy Cross Road. If you're ever down this way I'll take you to it!

Spanglish - Thanks! I was really happy with the way these came out.

And Chantal, you're right! January seems to hover on the edge of Spring around here - a lot of freezing and thawing going on - and it helps to spy things besides snow and ice!

Ree - I don't know, but I'll try to find out for you! It was on the ground outside of a graveyard, but I'm not sure if it was the old church bell or what....

Those are awesome. Totally worth the roads, I bet.

Again, you make me wish I was there.

Lovely. I've never been in Canada in the winter, but now I want to be.

Italy Cross? Now there's a place I haven't been in a while. Beautiful pics.

I love that red house (is it a house?) it makes me miss Nova Scotia so much!

I love traveling back roads. So much to discover!

So picturesque. Way better than where I live.

I like the red building too. I bet if you're inside, you can hear the creek flowing by.

take me! We've limited roads, not a whole lot to explore.
