There are places that touch one's heart.   Some are scenes you see every day.    Others may not be familiar.  They just call to you.

This old abandoned home was one of those.   I almost missed it as we rode by.

We (hubby and I) were out on a bike ride.   The historical society had organized a "Drive your own tour" of the route that John Morgan and his raiders had traveled during the Civil War.  It marked the 150th anniversary of his famous invasion into the northern states.  We thought it would be fun to take some of the roads that he had journeyed.

Making a wrong turn allowed me to take a picture of this house.   It was situated back off the road a bit and partly hidden by summer's foliage.    It  made me wonder who might have lived here at one time.    Were they happy?   Did they have children...pets??

  One never knows what lies around the next curve.   It may be a scenic hillside...

an old shack...

a quiet country road or

                                                       a peaceful scene close to home!

                                            Thank you for letting me share these places with you.
                                                                       Have a wonderful evening!

  5. Thanks Debbie I enjoyed seeing your part of the world through your camera lens. I wonder if you are going to paint any of them...

  6. Or you might see two people on bikes! Beautiful scenery. The abandoned house is mysterious. I wonder why it was abandoned. Thank you for sharing your tour.

  9. Hi Debbie, I love taking those back road rides with you! I agree, oh...that beautiful home....wondering what was and the history behind it! My mind thinks the's a shame someone doesn't want to restore or sell it....too bad. Blessings and a wonderful week~~~Roxie
