A Good Fences Road Trip

"Some beautiful paths can't be discovered without getting lost."Erol Ozan





"In a gentle way you, can shake the world."
Mahatma Gandhi



I'm thinking a great way to shake the world 
would be a road trip to Woodstock, Connecticut
for my

GOOD FENCES

post this week!

"A good traveler has no fixed plans

and is not intent on arriving."
Lao Tzu


If you desire historic beauties 

this is certainly a perfect place to visit.





Welcome to the
Bowan House 







555 Route 169
Windham County
Woodstock, Connecticut
Roseland Cottage




Built in 1846
known as
Bowan Cottage
or
Henry C. Bowan House

Built in a Gothic Revival Style

A landmark example with board and batten wood cladding,
elaborate porch supports, oriel windows,
and two facades elaborated with gables or gable dormers.

A road trip
(can be close or far away) 
 it's just another way to get out there 
and see the whole world 
  that's just waiting to be noticed!
You'd be foolish to miss it.


"Travel makes one modest. 
You see what a tiny place you
occupy in the world."
Gustave Flaubert

Hello Karen!:) I love the back and white photo of Bowen House, it's such a great composition. The gate and fence are very nice, and I like your choice of quotes, that ring so true.

What a glorious tour - thank you so much.

I love the different definitions of "cottage". Over here, a cottage is usually a modest two up (sometimes three), two down dwelling. However, Roseland is beautiful. Thanks for sharing it.

Love that house... So far this summer, everywhere I've been I've been before. But I am planning on a trip to Cumberland Island later this month and I've not been there!

I love "Some beautiful paths can't be discovered without getting lost" - wonderful! That's quite a building - is it timber framed too?
