Throwback Thursday*

During my venture into Salem County New Jersey this past weekend I came across this abandoned farm.  The grass was overgrown and the red house is a bit tattered, while the barn lacked any real color.

Often times when I see an abandoned house I wonder why the family left and what their life may have been like. At other times I imagine buying the property and restoring it to its past glory.

That little black dot on the roof of the house is a vulture.   It was huge.  I   managed to capture a quick picture of him before he slipped behind the barn.

Wordless Wednesday: Just for Mom-mom

Well just a few words…..

My grandson gave me his first bouquet of freshly picked flowers.  He even put them in the glass for me.  Love me some him!

Keep Moving

While at the beach the other day I saw these two young men riding on the beach.

I was able to find a quote that I thought fit the scene perfectly.

Oldest church in Salem?

It truly amazes me that buildings can still remain fully in tact for over 200 years.  I am sure that repairs were completed but the bones of the building are still standing strong.

Will the buildings we build today still be around in 2215 or later?

Side Street Sunday – Over Half a Millennium Old

Today my travels lead me to venture into Salem County New Jersey.  My mother told me about this old oak tree that has been around for over 500 years.  I had to find this tree.

I found the oak tree after getting lost for about 45 minutes.  This old oak was pretty big.   I was not able to capture the entire tree with the lens that I had.

It is reported that back in the late 1670’s a treaty was signed (under this very tree) with the Lenni Lenape Indians for the land.

I wonder what stories would this old oak tell?
