While walking this morning I happened to look up and saw this interesting chimney on an old Victorian bed and breakfast, The Compass Rose. That gave me the idea to check out other old chimneys around Coupeville.
If you haven’t looked up lately to see chimneys on the homes in your town the is more than likely what you’ll see.
Not very exciting compared to these grand old brick chimneys that were built in the late 1800’s.
And then there’s the chimney on our 1953 home, still brick but not very fancy.
And now for something completely different! Covered wagons were the choice for moving families across the prairies of the west. They were often called “schooners” or “ships of the prairie”. There are no covered wagons around Coupeville because it’s on a island and the only way to get here was by ship. Imagine my surprise when I saw this ship going across our prairie! It must have been pretty close to shore to appear this big.
And that was my walking and gawking effort for today. I hope you enjoyed it and if there’s anything you’re interested in seeing from around my wee town just make a comment and I’ll try to accommodate your request.
