Friday's Fences

I missed last week thanks to a couple of bozo deliverymen who brought us our new washing machine, but also took out the overhead telephone cables as they came down the drive - no internet until we contacted the phone company - of course it was a Friday so we had to wait until Monday!!! 

Along with the telephone cables they forgot to connect the drain hose from the washing machine to the sink and when I used the washing machine (without checking their installation), I found a flooded laundry - GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

So, on to Friday's Fences. Something different this week. I found some quite interesting (I thought) gateways to share with you.

This one tickled my fancy. Why build a grand wide entry to a housing estate if all you are going to then do is put in posts so no-one can drive in.

I love this cute little engine. This place used to offer train rides around a railway track, but I don't think it is open any more, though the entrance is still there. Well, maybe it is still open, though I have never seen anyone there.

This property is in the middle of nowhere. Initially the owner had grand plans as he owns a company that produces these statues and this was going to be his showplace. Now all that remains are a few statues dotted around the paddocks and this entrance.

Finally.  Yes, Virginia there is a Fairyland. It exists in Lobethal, a little town in South Australia.

  1. NOw, those are all nice fences. I never looked at fences before but now that I am looking for them I see more and more. Good training, lol
    Have a nice weekend

  2. i love the fairyland entrance!

  3. The entrance into the housing development is indeed a puzzle. It made me smile. And so did the statues on the no defunct showplace. But the entrance to the Fairyland made me laugh out loud. :))

  4. oh, that would have totally made me angry - the flooded laundry is like insult after injury!

    i guess that is a walk-in grand entrance. :)

  5. These are all a perfect example of our world today! Thanks for the real life fence journey!
