Sunday pics

 if you're lucky like me, you live near a train. Every day at least once, usually twice, and sometimes three times, I hear the train: the low rumble of wheels over tracks, and then the whistle. If I happen to be at the crossing, the little gate I could easily crash through comes down, warning me back.

I love the sound of the train.

What do do you love about where you live?


  1. Beautiful pic. I used to live near the train tracks when I was in Nebraska. I did love hearing the trains--but I didn't always love being stopped by them, especially if I was running late!

  2. I don't live near tracks but it's amazing how far the sound will carry.

  3. I worry when I don't hear the train near me - means something's up and I'll have problems commuting to work! LOL!
    What do I love about where I live? It's not in London but when the trains are running I could get to London asap!

    Take care

  4. Ah, trains...maybe in the distance, a few miles away. Great pic!

  5. Forty years ago, we could hear the train passing through town about three miles away. Sad to say, the trains are all gone now.

    I love seeing the sunrise, set, and the stars. The space satellites passing overhead (I assume they aren't UFOs) and the moon rising.

    And the fields after a rain storm when the sun peeks through a break in the clouds near the horizon. Then I know what green *really* looks like.

  6. There is much to love where I live even it it is in the middle of nowhere. It's a double edged sword for me.
    We have a train that goes by every 2-3 hours and during the day I like it but at night it wakes me up and so I have to run a fan. No big deal. It's worth it really.
    The big skies here are awesome and the thunderstorms in the spring are so refreshing and invigorating. The hawks circling overhead and on and on.

  7. Beautiful header!

    I love having the mountains & wilderness just a few moments drive from my front door which is in the city!

  8. I grew up near train tracks and those mournful whistles were like lullabys to me. I miss that but have to say what I love most about where I live now is having a summer that stretches from March to October.ha

  9. that because I am right on the outskirts of Melbourne I can be out in the bush in about 10 minutes!

  10. I can hear the trains from where we live. Always have been able to. It really is a comforting sound. :)

  11. I like the sound of the birds outside and the owl that hoots every so often. And the weather of course, except in summer! Too hot, but the rest of the year is awesome. :)
