July 9



This barn used to belong to my Grandpa. It looks exactly like I remember it looking when I was young, even the name. To the left of the barn is a small pond and when I was young, Grandpa would let us go fishing in it. Good memories!
Grandpa has been gone for 30 years now and it's nice to go past that barn and remember those times.

Hi Mari...
Love a red barn.
Did it always have 'peaceful valley' painted on it?

It looks like the new owners appreciate the barn too.... it looks like they are taking care of it.

Smiles :)

As I get older I realize more and more that my adult perspective and my child perspective are quite different. For that reason, I am glad the barn looks the same to you and helps you remember your Grandpa.
