Along Highway 1

I took a drive to Coushatta today, down Highway 1 just a bit, to get some fresh vegetables at Ed Lester Farms.

To me, there is so much to see along Highway 1.  The simplest things fascinate me.

Like this house.  It's at the edge of a field, under a bunch of shade trees.

It looks abandoned...but is it?

But doesn't it look like it used to be a neat house?  What history is there?  Who lived there?  Who does it belong to?  Why has nobody taken care of it?  Why isn't anyone fixing it up?  What will happen to it?  

I'd love to see the inside.

It fascinates me.

Oh, my goodness, look at those AWESOME trees. Beautiful. Living now in Southern California, I miss seeing trees like that. They will not grow just anywhere in the world.

If you stop and focus on it, a tree is really a miraculous creation. That slender branches can support such masses of foliage...

I bet it was a great drive. I would like to see the inside of the house and have answers to those questions too!

If it's on the left heading to Coushatta, I think it would be the Yarbough home. They had 2 sons and I think they also had a younger daughter.
