Sunday Afternoon Stroll...Part 1...

This afternoon Jim and I took advantage of the beautiful weather and took a walk after lunch.  We headed south down the road, intending to walk around the block...

Everything is so green, and I couldn't resist taking lots of pictures.  Our neighbors chickens and their lone Jersey cow were enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon...

Neighbor Melvin's horses and mules were also enjoying time off...

We headed up the hill to the school house...

The name of the school is Rocky Ridge, and here's why.  If you look closely, you can see a rocky ridge running through the school yard.  (You might need to click on the picture to enlarge it)...

The schoolhouse is on Clearview Road, and you can see how the road got it's name!  I took this series of pictures turning a slow circle clockwise.  The first picture is facing west...then north, east, and south.  The lighting wasn't the greatest, but I think you'll get the idea...

...our farm is pretty tiny looking, at the top of the picture.  It's about .6 of a mile away...

Here's the baseball diamond east of the school...

Check out what they use as a base.  Do you know what it is?

This was only the first part of our walk.  There are way too many pictures of the rest of it to put on here today.  I'll save that for another time!

Happy Sunday to you!  It's supposed to rain tonight, so we'll probably see the grass growing really fast this week.  We might even be able to put the cows out in the pasture soon...that's always fun to watch.

Stay tuned for the rest of our Sunday afternoon walk.


  1. cute little school. love seeing the farm pastures. is that a disc from a disc-er?

  2. Is this a rural public school or an Amish school? I saw the rocky ridge! I only went to schools with Saint's names LOL. What WAS the base!

  3. Did you make it all the way around? You should've stopped by.

  4. Nice country road walk and the grass is so very green. Ours is still brown and flat from the heavy snow. We had a bit of snow sprinkle at 5:00am this morning but it melted when the sun came out. Winter was just taking a peek at Spring and what she has dome so far... hehe.

    Love that base... looks like a disk from our farm equipment that was lost in the field after my grandson did some disking last Spring. He never noticed that he had lost the piece from the disking

    Enjoy your nice weather.

  5. What a lovely walk! I love how green every thing is, and how clear and pretty it looks.
    Is that a disk? That made me laugh.
    It looks so pretty.

  6. I'm with TexWisGirl. The base must be a disc. Lovely walk!

  7. What a beautiful walk! I have to tell you, I have no idea what that "base" is!

  8. Looks like you and the Hubby had a nice afternoon! The base is a disc of a farming toolbar.

    Hope you have a fabulous week, Alicia!

  9. It's so good to finally see things greening up. We all survived another winter. Fun little school house.

  10. Seems to me that a walk around the block in the country is a long, long, walk! Pretty country, and I would guess that the base is a disc off a harrow.

  11. What a lovely area you live in, thanks for taking us along on your walk! :)

  12. lovely! A spring walk is just the best and I envy you the views. Getting up on a hill and looking around is one of my favorite things to do.

  13. What a great walk. You are so fortunate to live in the country and be able to walk some quiet, back roads. Love it and loved your pictures.


I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
