Barn Charm Tuesday

I'm once again joining in the weekly Barn Charm

We always see this beautiful barn in the distance along Hwy. 94 every time we head into town.  But Sunday, after everyone headed home from the Easter fun, we took a relaxing drive along the old rutted, sometimes gravel and dirt, river road, and got up close and personal with this beauty.

Barn along Old Hwy 94 along the Missouri River close to the State Capital


We had a beautiful Easter.  The weather was perfect, making for a wonderfully relaxing day.  Hopefully I will get some pictures posted later in the day.  Until then, stay safe everyone and thanks for visiting.

What a beautiful home that old barn would make. It has the front porch of my dreams..look at that tin roof! Can you see wicker furniture, ivy, a fresh coat of barn red paint...window boxes..tree's..or...just as it is!
Like me, gray and aging, with a history...

I love old barns, house, etc.... I can just pictures lots of kiddo's out there playing when the barns or houses were much newer. Enjoy your blog!

This barn is a beauty, Deanna. I always think of those windows near the top like so many have as the eyes of the barn. I love the roof overhang, too.
Have a great day!

That roof overhang is impressive.
Interesting, too,that there is graffiti on this barn (something not often seen!)

I'd love to see the inside of this barn, too. I bet it has a lot of history hidden inside.

This one is a real beauty! It pays to take the road less traveled.

Gorgeous old barn, looks like it came straight out of the old west! I'd love to explore inside... did you get to go inside?

Thanks for joining =)

What a beauty that one is. I'd love to have a big old wrap~'round porch like that charmin' barn has.

I know I've said it before but I do so love the character these old barns hold. Besides I'm old, I'm entitled to repeat myself! heeehehehe!

Great capture sweetie.

May God richly bless your day!!! :o)
