Fence on the Roof

 At the top of an older Newmarket home

Yesterday while my husband was taking a nap, I took a walk from the hospital to Main Street, Newmarket to see what I could find to photograph.

Looking over a fence to see a fence (Did you get that?)

I am linking to Good Fences HERE.

I agree. I would call it a widow's walk... that's assuming you can see the ocean from there !

What a charming home, is it near the water perchance?

The one on the roof is work of a craftsman.

Those are awesome crafted fences and the house is beautiful! I was thinking widow's walk too atop the house! Now that is a unique fence for Good Fences! Cool!

You managed to double up on the fences, clever you. The house is really interesting.

What a cool photo! Wonder if anyone uses the top of the roof or if its just for decoration. Either way it's a beaut shot :D)

That is quite a house! And 'tis well-fenced. I would love to explore this place; I'll bet there are a bunch of nooks and crannies full of interesting things!

Best wishes to you and your husband!

That's a cool old house. They don't make 'em like that anymore.

The fences are great but what's even better is that you were able to get out and see a few things and have some fresh air.

Now this is quite clever!

i always want to see what's inside a victorian house. my curiousity gets stronger every day it seems.

Lisa Gordon said...

Nicely seen and captured, and what a beautiful old house this is!

RedPat said...

Great old house, EG! It's funny how blogging can be an escape for a bit when things are stressful but it does make you head out for a walk when you can and just occupy your mind a little. Hope the patient gets out of there soon.

very creative play on words. I wonder what the purpose is for the fence on the roof?

I got it, but I don't get it! I guess it's purely ornamental, right?
