Walk with me

Roy is getting older, and I guess with my recent hip problem, I have been happy to not go for long walks.
He is happy just to take a short walk through Kingsbury.

 Heading out the driveway after dinner.

Right across the road is the cemetery.  The original owners of my house (built in 1790) are buried here.

 Here's a house two doors down, unfortunately it hasn't been taken care of that well.

 I love the old stone in front of it, to tie your horse up to.

And the Baptist church, built about the same time as my house.
They did put all new windows in it a few years back, and did a great job of replacing them with the exact windows.

The parish house, across the way, where Lois and I sometimes lay out big rugs to sew them together.
It's an awesome old building.

The Kingsbury General Store, also has been around for a couple of hundred years.

I love the little park in the center of the hamlet.

 DH is already planning on this one!

I wish I could travel back in time, to see what Kingsbury was like back then.
But I guess I'll just have to imagine.

 The story is that Burgoyne burned everything in his path.   When we built the porch, we found remnants of what looked like another foundation, behind my house.  Maybe that's the one that was burned.

L's brother has the most amazing pumpkins EVER.

Heading home.

My neighbors' house, again, not much ever done here.

My house, and Roy's new yard.

I love the sun on the corn across the road.

 There's no place like home.
That's so true.
I am home here in Kingsbury.

Did I tell you they were BIG????

Back to circles.

I grew up and spent the first half of my life living in Pennsylvania and am quite familiar with houses that were built 200 years ago. Then I moved to Texas and discovered that there were very few structures that old here. Quite a difference.

Good morning! What a beautiful walk! Here in California, we don't see much green this time of year. Your house is, love, love the windows. Thank you for taking us with you.

Thank you for sharing your walk with us. Some people post too many pictures - yours are always so interesting and I could have savored even more.

Love your charming hamlet.

A very quaint little town you now live in. I love small towns that have a lot of history. Yes, they are BIG. :)
