A Fence, a Tongue, and a Ride

Still posting pics from Punky Doodle and the Punks visit last Sunday. I've posted lots of fences from Lincoln Log Cabin Historical Site before, so these fences will be no surprise to anyone who visits. 



I liked the yellow field of goldenrod in the background. 


The online camera club has given the next assignment—shadows. So, of course, I'm looking for shadows everywhere. This isn't good enough to submit, but again, liked the fence and gate.


The littlest Punk is about as busy as Fergus, so they get along fine. Mom Punk and the rest of the Punks went inside the gift shop while I waited outside with Fergus. I think the little Punk wore him out. He sat quietly with that uncontrollable tongue hanging out of his mouth, waiting patiently for his friend to return.


After a while, the patience was wearing thing. Here he is focused on the door.


Here is what #3 Punk came out with for his souvenier. A tiny covered wagon.

Good morning! I saw your link on Fences today and Illinois intrigued me. I am also originally from Central Illinois and have a son in Auburn. I'm now transplanted in Texas since 08. Your pictures of New Salem brings back a lot of memories. Will be in Illinois in May for a graduation and wedding. My first visit, but I'll be back.

What wonderful photos of a dog waiting for his master. You gotta love the tongue! LOVE the fence shadow and Goldenrod. Also the fence, it is so different. Kind of like they made the wood spikes sticking upward to keep people out.

Love the fence shot! Beautiful dog and cute souvenir.

Those fences are so interesting. They almost look like upside down picnic tables. Love the vegetation around them, too.
Have a great weekend!

Neat looking fences. The boards seemed placed, every which way.
Cute dog.
That's a pencil sharpener that he got. My mom collects those and has many, many different ones.

I have not seen fences like those. That's a lot of work to erect them. Your dog is adorable.

I was very curious how a tongue fit in with a fence.

The wagon makes for a neat shadow shot!

That style fence is so intriguing. I wish for a local camera club. I need a com padre or three in photography.

I love those rustic log fences. They're really nice! And I think I need that covered wagon to feed my growing wagon addiction. ;-)
