I think I May Be Obsessed with Old Barns

Red Barn

On my days off, mom and I like to go exploring!

One of the things I like to do, is drive through ‘farm country’ in search of old barns!

I think I may be obsessed with them!

Unfortunately, as we explore, I am seeing the traditional wood and stone barns going by the wayside.

Gradually, I see newer barns being built of aluminum or steel… for this reason, I am always pleased when I come across an old barn – especially one that is still in use and well taken care of!

Barns come in all shapes and sizes! Some big, some little…

Like this little yellow barn I christened ‘the happy barn!’

Or this lovely white barn I found…

Barns are used by farmers for a number of things… housing for livestock… storage of food, such as this big ‘dehydrator’ that is used to cure tobacco after its been brought in from the field.

As I explore the local area in search of these old, beautiful barns, I can’t help but think about the families that live on the farm… the memories that are being made… and the stories they hold…  yes, I truly do think I am obsessed with old barns!

Until next time,

Peace, love and safe travels!
