South Dakota Skies

The top photo was taken from the middle of our driveway. The second photo was taken just minutes later from inside our garage. Talk about a quick moving wall cloud!

Linking up with Sky Watch Friday.

Cowboy Country

You know you live in cowboy country when they announce over the loud speaker at Wal-Mart "We have Rodeo star so-n-so and rodeo queen so-n-so here signing autographs..."

And where better to put the Rodeo stars table than right next to this ...

Happy Hump Day Everyone!

Rapid City: West Blvd Historic District

One chilly morning, this last week, on my way to an appointment I happened to find myself going through the West Blvd Historic District in down town Rapid City.

I can just imagine how regal this neighborhood once appeared with it's wide parkways and divided boulevard. I really need to explore this neighborhood more.
Although Purple is my favorite color I don't generally think it looks good as an exterior color for a home. However, this time it most definitely worked in my opinion.

Although most of the homes along this section of the neighborhood seemed rather small there was still a great deal of charm.
 As I ventured down the block, my excitement began to rise as the homes got a bit larger. Okay, so I am a sucker for big old houses with wrap around porches.
Oh and can we say bay window? A wrap around porch and a beautiful bay window, two of my biggest architectural weaknesses.
This one even had a cute side gate. I was so drawn to the side of the home I didn't even take a shot of the front. LOL
Just one block from where I started we have a view of the business district down town. 

Next time I will spend more time and check out more of the historical buildings. For now I wish you all a wonderful week.

For more virtual travel be sure to hop over and play along with the others at Unknown Mami's Sunday In My City.
