Good Fences - Gorgeous Gates


Welcome to Thursday's Good Fences link up with TexWisGirl.

With the kids back to school, I have a half hour free to walk around before their bus comes in and so I headed for Hillsborough Fort.


The gates are beautifully wrought and the stonework isn't too shabby either!  It is open all year round to the public for free, though you can't actually go inside the fort building.



And please note we have blue skies! - it seems like that only happens once in a while here as its been a dull, damp and fairly cool summer.

Thanks so much for visiting and for your comments

  10. Oh that gate is fancy and fabulous. The fort looks really cool. It would be neat if you could go inside the fort but just walking around it would be fun as well.
