The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Good Cemetary Fences


Beaufort, North Carolina

I went to the cemetery in Beaufort searching for several weird and unusual graves.  I didn't find them.
But to not come away empty handed I got the Beaufort Cemetery fence for Good Fences.

How would you like to have to paint this fence?  Notice the drip marks on the sidewalk.

Check out TexWisGirl's GOOD FENCES for more fence fotos.

  2. I like the variation in heigh of the fence. Makes it more venerable by still using normal material.

  3. That is a fence you can't miss when passing by. Must have been painted recently, it looks so clean and bright.

  4. A great fence John, looks like it is in the process of being painted, and no I am not putting my hand up for the job.

  24. John, the eastern Sierras are GORGEOUS in the fall, especially October. I took 2 days off school one year and we spent 4 days there (actually, 2 were driving days...)...It is well worth it!
