IN THE FIELD: New Discoveries


Now that we are pretty much settled into our new home, I’ve had a chance to get out and do a little exploring. My last post featured the view from our backyard at sunset on our first night, which showed a church steeple on the distant horizon. And yesterday, I found the church. Turns out the original church was built in early 1700’s and has gone through renovations and expansions over the last couple hundred years.

We now live closer to civilization where running errands is not an all day affair as it was in the past. And at the same time we are still in a rural area with plenty of elbow room. So I’m pretty sure I will be able to make many new discoveries in our new locale.

I can’t wait to see what’s out there!

      Thanks Ted, I can’t wait to see what’s around the next corner. The area was settled by the Swedes in the early 1700’s…I think I can find something of interest!

    The White against the sky is brilliant. What denomination is this church, wondering if the style ties in with that or the time it was built. Lovely and look forward to more.

      It was a beautiful Autumn morning two days ago. The current denomination is The United Church Of Christ. The church has had a history of several denominations. Lutheran and Reformed faiths along with The Church of The Brethren.

      I think I shall be rather busy exploring. There are so many neat old homes and buildings around. Many of which date back 100 plus years! In fact Daniel Boone’s birthplace is not far away.

    And we can’t wait to see what YOU see (the steeple is stunning). Sounds as if you are very well situated for a new chapter in your lives.

      I think this place will suit us quite well. There is a lot to explore…and you’ll see also!

      I’ll have to stop by when there is someone around. I would love to see the inside. Plus there is a small chapel that needs exploring. So much to investigate!!!!

      We’ve been having a blast exploring the area…and the sky really was that blue. I love the sky in Autumn and Winter!
