OLD FENCES in AUGUSTA KY #9

Hey ya'll!
Today I'm joining up with  Run*A*Round Ranch Report to share some country fence photos in Augusta, KY.
Friday, (Aug. 28th) I took a ride up to the Ohio River and had lunch with my Aunt Marlene. 
Just a picnic we had packed. Home made chicken salad, Ritz crackers, chips, assorted donuts for dessert and of course, Ale-8 (most popular pop here in KY) to wash it all down with.
Then we just sat around, watching everyone come and go...
Watched the Jenny Ann ferry (oldest ferry still on the Ohio River) come and go a few times too...
(Still only $5 for a car and foot travel is free)

Looked around at a few landmarks...
This is the Welcome center and Rotary Railroad Museum. Isn't it so cute?
 Visited a few shops...
I loved this little shop btw, the owner was the nicest I met all day! I could've just talked to her all day. If you ever visit, be sure to drop in Ninas!
I heard George Clooney makes his home here on the River.
I'm not a big celebrity person, but I do think that man is awesome.
I never ran into him, but my Aunt has seen him in front of this little, cute store called Nina's....
on a tv thing, gearing up for the Labor Day celebration called Heritage Days.
It was the most perfect weather ever.
And as always, I was still looking around for some cute fences. I found tons, but here are a few I loved.
I am a sucker for about any corner fence out there, so I loved this one.







As you can tell, I love old, wooden fences the most. But every now and then others catch my eye too...
 
 
Home of General John Payne

Now a B&B on the river...

And here is a partial back view:

One thing is to say for sure about this town. It is just lovely.
The people are friendly and the streets were all kept very neat and tidy. Most of the shops were still ran by long time owners and you could tell they were proud of that. I just love little ole' towns like this.
I even got to sit outside one, in makeshift farming machine seats, while a tiny shop was "Gone for 5 minutes."  And they really were, lol. 

It was just an old time relaxing kinda day to let your worries go away.

Thanks again to Good Fences for the linkup!
