Time already for a Friday Fence Post! I've been thinking about this one all week, ever since I got to go up to the Hood River Valley to see Mama. She and her sister, my Aunt Charlotte, go for a two-mile walk just about every day. My brother Duane was also visiting, so the four of us all went.

The daily walk takes place on a road near Aunt Charlotte's, with this on one side:

and this on the other:

Now, when I go walking with other people and have my camera with me, a routine usually develops quite quickly. I stop to take pictures. They keep walking. I run to catch up. Same number of steps, but I like the extra exertion it gives me!

My "little" brother (he is younger!) encourages me:

Between the two photos just above, there was a fence. A great fence. Close-ups first:

Look how the lichen and weathered knothole have formed a heart:

And then this last one. I didn't even see the horse until I had the gate in my viewfinder. I love it!

One last shot of the dog who joined us at about the half-mile mark. You may not be able to see from this shot, but this is one BIG dog. When he stands on his hind feet, he is at least as tall as Mama, and he quite easily bounces up to eye-level with that six-foot brother o' mine. And we are all convinced he's just a puppy still! He has that goofy galumphing playfulness that only puppies have, and when he isn't suddenly putting his front paws on your shoulders, he's quite the charmer.

Puppy was entranced by the newly-constructed igloo in this yard, and almost went inside, but there was this other dog...We didn't see him for a while after that, but he did rejoin us on our return.

Your turn! I haven't seen any fences but my own lately and I want to see yours! Post your fence on your blog, and drop the link into Mr Linky here, and be sure to leave a comment!

Such a beautiful area to walk and take pictures. I know what ya mean about people waiting while you get the perfect shot. Todays my first Fence Friday Post. Think I'll enjoy keeping my eyes out when I travel.

Added my linky from my blog, just happened to post earlier this month. I LOVE that at first you didn't see the horse, that is an awesome shot, the scenery is breath-taking, and no matter the weather ... in the scheme of things ... walks are beautifilled.

Camera attached at the hip!
