Dropped into the area of the old Lake Alice Psychiatric Hospital today.  This was a huge place, covering 56 acres, and with ten two-story buildings.  A haunted place that hid a lot of secrets.  Now only the old water tower and ruins remain.  The road has been closed to public access but you can still see the line of tarseal through the fences.

the place
that once held them in
now keeps them out


Clouds were threatening on our walk this morning, so a shorter one than usual, but I love the diversity of plants and architecture in this place, not to mention a wonderful children’s playground that we often pass.

flowers, old bricks
and the old woman’s shoe
so much to see
