Time for barns - on this third day of the new year. No matter where we travel in our area we come across lovely barns - old and new.
Wouldn't you love to live in that big farm house? Just wander from room to room - enjoying the space and beauty of a well built home.
I'm always fascinated by this hill - it just appears right straight up out of the valley floor - and the farm is nestled up against it.
The horses weren't even aware we were there
I don't think the barn gets much use anymore.
I know - not a barn - but one of my favorite homes in the Skagit Valley. It used to be a bed and breakfast, but now is a private home.
A few of its charming outbuildings - the two on the right used to be guest rooms, often with views of migrating Trumpeter Swans and Snow Geese in the fields.
