Quantico

On an unseasonably warm day in February, after weeks of wintry coldness and snow, Gary and I walked through the historic Eastern Shore town of Quantico.   Here are a few photos from that outing.   You can see much more interesting details if you click on the photos to enlarge them.

This dog was the first thing that greeted us as we parked our vehicle in a church parking lot.   He was being a very good guard dog and did his duty by barking at us ....


I loved the yellow on this house, and the white trim .... and it had a beautiful yard, which will be even more beautiful when the flowers begin to bloom.


A driveway between two of the houses ... I love the shed and the shadows.


A shiny old car .... and it's for sale


I was taken by the curve on the front of this wonderful older white house.


Clothes on a line ... I didn't notice until I was processing the picture that there is a person in the yard chair to the right.


Gotta love porch swings ....

Notice the yellow chairs on the porch of this already-colorful house ...


A beautiful garden shed, with a little basket and a star to give a country touch ....


This house was built in the late 1700's ... I believe it is for sale.


Another nice garden shed ....


I love the rustic cabin feel of this place ....


On the way home, we stopped at Michael's.   While Gary went inside, I stayed in the car and was taking a photo of our dashboard when I was startled by passionate barking ... looked to my right and saw this little guy whose bark was much bigger than his body.

Looking forward to the promise of Spring .... aren't you?

Hi Frances,
Thanks for taking us along for the ride. Beautiful photos! My favorite one is of the driveway leading to the white shed.

The house for sale looks pretty awesome too...:) What a fun place that would be to buy!

Have a wonderful weekend!

XOXO Gloria

Such beautiful pictures, just love the little yellow house. It's so much fun taking these picture walks with you and Gary and I must say seeing the world without several feet of snow right now is a treat for the eyes :-)
