Backyard Fences

Fence, back deck and "backyard" on Cook's Bay

Some people on Cook's bay don't have grass in their backyards because their homes  are right on the water.

 Another fence and back deck

Another "backyard"

Great fences and cool reflections!

Bethany Carson said...

Very neat! I do like the reflections, but I don't think I'd like to live so close to the water; it seems a house like that could easily be flooded.

Looks like a great place to chill out!

You always capture such interesting angles and reflections, and elevate the 'mundane' to the 'gloria'.

William Kendall said...

Terrific reflections!

I think it's the problems with ice that would keep me from having a place on the water.

Sandra said...

my hubby has always wanted a back yard just like these, he had to settle for a pool, just not the same... were you in a boat?

Pamela Gordon said...

Those decks look a little tipsy in the water. Nice reflections of the fences. Enjoy the day!

Sandra,
These "backyards are next to a narrow inlet with a boat launch. I was on the other side of the inlet.

Lowell said...

I like the variety of fencing. And how wood is affected by water. Some cool reflections here, too!

If I would live that close to the water a deck would be plenty for me :) Great pictures with real nice reflections!

Ileana said...

Lovely fences and reflections! Have a great day!

Birdman said...

You'd need more than a picket fence to keep that water out, if it ever got unruly.

Revrunner said...

Nice! No mowing . . . (sigh). :-)

Karen S. said...

Goodness gracious me, I can't decide which I like better the real or the reflections?! Marvelous spread.

carolann said...

Great fences and I too like the reflections.

Carola Bartz said...

That's pretty neat. Great reflections. Let's just hope they're not flooded.

Sharon Wagner said...

A double fence. The reflection is a bonus.

Jo said...

Very unique "backyards" and you captured great reflections along with the fences. Have a great day. Jo

Sylvia K said...

I do love the reflections and such great shots for the day!! Hope your week is going well, EG!! Enjoy!

Jeanne said...

Really neat pictures. I have always found that people who live right on the water think a little bit different.
Their lives become tied to that water.

ladyfi said...

Wonderful shots.

Mascha said...

Nice photos with the reflections! I so often wish to live by the water...

the reflection is beautiful.

Ida said...

How interesting to have water as your "backyard". I really like the way you captured the reflections of the fences in the water.

Country Wife said...

Very nice pictures I love seeing them because its something I wouldnt otherwise get to without you sharing, thanks.

RedPat said...

I think I'd back the house off a bit from the water! And keep the decks, EG.

Debbie said...

Nice fences, and what a lovely reflection!!

Halcyon said...

I wouldn't mind that kind of backyard. It's easy to care for, at least!

NatureFootstep said...

beautiful but I would be scared of storms :(

barbara l. hale said...

No grass to cut. I'm down with that. Nice pics!

Valerie said...

Love the rustic feel of these images and those reflections are great!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I like the rustic feel of these fences.

cieldequimper said...

I wouldn't mind having a dock myself...

Jack said...

No grass to mow? That works for me! Pretty.

Terri Buster said...

Very pretty, but I would need just a little bit of green grass!

Lois said...

Those are some interesting back yards. If your house is that close to any kind of water around here, you better be prepared to have an alligator or two as a neighbor!

eileeninmd said...

I would love to live near the water, just not too close.. Great fence shots..

Montanagirl said...

Nice fences - and nice reflections!

Felicia said...

that would be rather neat not to have to worry about cutting grass. nice fences too.

Jen said...

I could get used to a liquid backyard. Just raise the house a few feet in case of a storm.

Janey and Co. said...

Great reflection. Fence does a nice job providing privacy.

Cloudia said...

A different sort of 'yard'

Well shown

Good fences and great reflections!

Carletta said...

Hmmm...I think I'd like those 'backyards'. :)

bailey-road.com said...

Nice shots. I think I'd like living right on the water.

Rory Bore said...

no grass because you are close to water is a not a bad deal at all! I could definitely live without mowing all summer.
LOVE the reflections you captured here. lovely.

Indrani said...

Great frames for the theme. The last one is so well taken.
