Back Roads, Country Style

Come on....join me on a long ride in the country. After all, that's what Saturdays were made for.

 Old barn near Ninety-Six, SC.

 Not sure what this building's purpose was....I don't think it was a barn because it was sitting beside an old barn. It is located near Ninety-Six, SC.

 Abandoned house on Hwy. 56 near Clinton, SC.

 This barn appears to be still in use. It's so much prettier in person. 
It's located near Joanna, SC.

 Sharon United Methodist Church near Kinards, SC.
Love those stained glass windows.

 This looks like it was once an old general store....or maybe an old depot. It was sitting right beside the railroad.
It is next door neighbors with the Sharon UMC pictured above, 
near Kinards, SC.

And what would a ride in the country be without a few birds and farm animals?

It was a lazy kind of day. The cardinals were resting.

 The sheep were resting.


And so was the horse. 


Love those back roads.....
Can't wait to do it again, Country Style.

Laurie

  2. Hi Laurie, I have been trying to catch up with my friends tonight. I love to drive the back country roads because you never know what you will see. The country churches with the stain glass windows are always something to see. Take care. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend Shirley

  5. What lovely pictures! Thanks for taking us along for the ride. Love that wide, low barn with the four big doors across the front. I don't think I've ever seen one in that design.

  7. I love old barns and would love to have one here on the Pines! But, like you, I'm happy to see them on country roads. Great shots and I love the Mr. & Mrs. Cardinals! So pretty! Wonderful way to spend your Saturday! Winter has arrived today...blowing, snowing, chilling!
