#327/365 Wacky Ward (Monday)











So, today, it was too cold to go on a hike like we had planned. Instead, we hopped in the car and took a random, scenic drive to ... well, we *had* no destination in mind. As we drove, we came to a sign that said, "Ward".

Since my husband knows me well, he doesn't even have to ask, "Wanna go to Ward?". Because, of course, the answer would be 'yes'. So, he turned and we drove down a steep, winding hill down in one of the weirdest towns I have ever seen. And trust me when I say, these photos do not do the wackiness justice.

Here are some links, in case you are interested in learning more about this town.

I think we found our retirement village. LOL
