Drive By Barns…

You know how it goes…when you see something that would be cool to take a photo of you are on a direct mission to your destination. No time for stopping along the way. On our way to and back from our son’s in Eastern Washington I took a lot of shots of barns from the highway. If they are a little blurry it’s because we were going 70 and 80 MPH fast!

Close to Ellensburg…

Does covered hay count as a hay barn? These first few I’m sharing are from Central Washington.

We had a great weekend. On Saturday we traveled to Chilliwack, B.C. to attend a wedding. We enjoyed time with seven of the Mennonite Girls and their husbands but we had a total photo fail. None of us got one photo of the eight of us together. Oye! On Sunday after church we enjoyed a pulled pork meal with our Western Washington kids and we watched the Seattle Sounders game together. We had fun cheering loudly together and we won which is always more enjoyable than losing!

Hope you had a good weekend!

  1. Sounds like a wonderful weekend – the farms are fabulous. I get a lot of drive by photos too – some turn out great – some have to go in the discard file.

  2. Wow. Epic fail that! No photo of the MGCC? Hope that we’ll get glimpses at least.

    Love the picture you shared in words…cheering together and winning. =D

  3. What lovely countryside Ellen. The last time that I was in the Portland area I saw huge piles of straw stacked and covered. They told be that the straw was exported to Japan. Straw for cars, not a bad deal. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  4. Indeed I do know what it’s like to try to take photos from a moving car. Yours turned out very well compared to mine! (I am going to forget what you said about going 70 to 80 miles per hour. Eek!! More traffic here in the east? Speed limits are typically 55 to 65. And I am a travel wuss.)

    Your weekend sounds lovely!

  5. Love them, typically American. The speed adds a feeling of a misty morning. The previous structures are certainly quirky.
    I am off to scroll your previous latest posts but will not comment as I have got so behind with blogging. I know I am in for a treat. Thanks for your visit.
