All through the afternoon Ricia and I came across these wonderful looking stone walls, fencing off peoples property. Seeing them brought back memories of when I went to school in New England as a teenager. And I remember coming across one like that once, and found it interesting as well back then. But I can't remember if it was perfectly even on all sides like all of these were, which is it's signature feature.
How they could get a fence to be so flat on top and the sides when all the stones are of such a variety of different sizes and shapes is a marvel. I snapped shots of several that we saw today. But as we drove down this particular street this wall took the cake. It was more than twice the length of what you see here in this photo, and Reesh could tell that I really was enamored with this one which was the grandest example of all the ones we'd seen. So she parked around the corner and let me get out to photograph it.
When I got to a suitably photogenic spot I snapped the shutter on my camera, then walked back to Reesh's SUV, which was some walk as long as this wall was. What a fantastic looking way to fence off your property, very New England like.
