A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Saturday Sightings - Unexpected Pleasures...

Back when I first started blogging - I had good intentions of doing 
a Saturday Sightings feature.  And I did.... a few. 
But today, I happened upon some neat things in my
 morning outing - and just had to share...

First up - I had no idea that I lived near this beauty.   Covered bridges used to be fairly familiar around here - but unfortunately - many have been victims of arson.  

Today I was on a small nearby road that I've apparently never 
been on before.  What a treat when I got to pass through this 
wondrous piece of local history on the old wooden floor boards.

And when I came out the other side - this great old stone and 
stucco farmhouse greeted me.  Love that tree too!

Second up - as I was driving down another back road I saw a 
horse go running full barrel into a pasture.  The owner was 
nearby and I stopped to ask if I could take pictures.
  "Sure thing"... was the reply.   "I have another horse I'm bringing out - 
you can stay and watch".  I learned that today was the first day 
the horse owner was letting her horses out to pasture
 after being cooped up all winter.  I was all prepared
 to get some great full-out running horse shots...

 "This horse is over 30 years old" I was told.  So out she came...
 ... ready to break into her first Spring gallop...

...or not! 
Apparently a good back scratching was all this horse desired.

 Too funny!

 "Have  a good day in the pretty sunshine my horse friend."

I'm thinking I like this meandering down country roads stuff.
And I love this area that I live in!

What did you do on this gorgeous Spring day?
  (Hopefully it was warm and sunshiny where you live too.)
