Summer road trips

This is a bit of a catch up post, but here's a little look at what I've been up to.

At least the fun part ;)


We visited the Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch...






























Dug for bottles and artifacts...




Hit the backroads to see abandoned buildings...








sad old houses...


cute cows...




and a big ol' bull along the way.



More from my Summer coming soon!

I'm really behind in my blog visiting and replies, but I'm trying really hard to catch up.

Forgive me!

  4. Oh, I love ostriches. The photographs you took are so beautiful. It looks like you two had a wonderful time. The birds and animals are so gorgeous. You could really work some magic on that old house...

  8. That is an adorable dress! I know - not the point of the post :-) What fun. I love old houses. It would be so much fun to win the lottery and go around restoring them. There must be so many memories within those walls.

  9. I recognize Picacho Peak in the background and assumed this must be the place along Interstate 10 that we used to pass by on our trips from Tempe down to Tucson to visit family. Never did stop to see the ostriches, but it looks like a fun way to spend a morning. xo

  24. I was once told that the best spot to dig for artifacts is where the outhouse had been as they would toss that kind of stuff in it!

    I wonder what went on in that old house?
    Would be wonderful to see it all made news.

  29. Loved it! My favorite photo is the one of you with your pony tail out straight...that pretty much captures the fun of this post. No worries about catching up. Today I am only ranting about the photo host who is holding us all captive for ransom. Spare yourself! =D

  30. Hi Rue ... I know what you mean about being behind and catching up with our favourite bloggers! I'm blaming it on the summer with more to do! LOL!

    Such a great selection of photographs here, I think my favourite is the first one.

    Enjoy the weekend.

    All the best Jan
