The other day after dinner, Vince said “Let’s take a drive!” Sounded good to me . . just so we don’t have to go shopping. We drove out to the Four Rivers Conservation Area, about 12 miles from our little town.
It was so beautiful out there. There’s almost 14,000 acres! That’s a lot of land . . and a lot of water!
I thought this plaque was interesting . . mostly interesting that vandals haven’t ruined it. There were quite a few plaques and monuments out there.
We passed this old farm that had been completely abandoned. There were big brick pillars with a sign of what was the name of the farm but everything was in shambles. Kinda sad. Makes me wonder . . Did the owners just get too old and give up because no one else in their family wanted to carry on? Did they not make it financially? It’s been abandoned for a while . . not a result of the current financial woes. Maybe they sold the whole place to a developer and they made lots of money and the developer is waiting til the economy gets better to develop the land. That’s a happy ending so I’ll just go with that one! 🙂
