Country road take me home... .

Good Evening... 
Just sharing some pics that I took today when we went for a little drive  to check up on our old farm.. 

It is a winter's day here in rural Eastern Canada... 
It is not really a cold day and as you can see we do not have a lot of snow... 
Usually. there is much more..
I am not complaining.. smile.. 

Prosser Brook is not even frozen over..



Our old barn looks kind of lonely on this dull winter's day...


The rural roads are snow covered up here in the hills...


An old barn ...


A big old house .. alone and neglected...


An old church which has been empty for many years...


Lumber cut and ready.....


Clearing land for a huge water reservoir for the city.... 
Some of this land used to belong to my family... 


We used to go swimming in this creek ...

Another old barn ...

There are many horse farms here in New Brunswick...


The road was cleared to our friend's camp .. 
The fire was burning but no one was home.. grin..


Some beautiful berries in the snow...


We need to go home now.. 
Hope you enjoyed the little field trip..smile... 

Have a blessed Lord's Day tomorrow, my dears.. 
Love to you all...

Let everything alive give praises to the Lord!
Psalms 150: 4

    1. Oh Faye what beautiful photos. Thanks for taking us with you on your road trip. I love the song Country Road its an oldie but a goodie! We here in Ontario have no snow left which is strange for this time of year and its already feeling like spring and mild even some buds on the trees and bushes are visable and my Daffodils are poping above ground . Have a wonderful day !

  2. I love when I see a new post from you, Faye, I enjoy your writing style and your photos are always just beautiful. I feel bad for those animals in the snow. I am glad you are back home safe and sound. I am not a winter gal, even though I have lived my entire life in the Northeastern part of the US. xo

  4. Faye, your photos brought back a lot of memories of traveling the back roads of Albert and Kings county with my parents when I was a youngster. We often went for Sunday drives on those roads. My mother had a spot all picked out that she wanted to put a little cottage on. :) Prosser Brook is pretty but it's sad to see the old barns, school and houses empty and forlorn isn't it? Thanks for the visit back in time. Have a blessed Sunday. Pamela

  7. Hi Faye,
    I really love your snow pics. It reminds me so much of Oregon. Oh, and that old house and school...so beautiful. I wonder what kind of stories those buildings could tell :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  12. Thanks for taking us along for the ride, Faye... it's nice to take a trip through such beautiful countryside without ever leaving the house. :) Although now I think I need to put on some heavier socks because seeing all the snow made my feet cold. *giggle*
    I get sad over seeing those old houses and buildings~ I imagine at one time there were sounds coming from inside like laughter and children playing, and now... silence. *sigh*
    I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow... ((HUGS))

  32. Gorgeous photos! Only our God can create such beautiful, pristine surroundings like that! I'm so thankful for the beauty in His creation that he blesses us with daily. It's all around if we would just open our eyes to it.
