E is for entrance, A is for Anchor, S is for steps and Y is for yaird!
E N T R A N C EI was on the hunt all week for photos that would spell out the word EASY. I happened on this entrance to the D Bar S Ranch while the Old Salt and I were out and about this week in search of new photo opts. I somehow think of ranches being located in places like Texas, so in my book this was just another Missouri cattle farm. But, perhaps being able to call yourself a rancher is somehow more classy than just being a farmer. Then again, I guess a ranch is just a farm that grows cattle.

I remembered this old ship's anchor thats been resting in front of a building on Front street for decades. The seating area faces the river and is a great place to relax while taking a stroll around the downtown shops. This building is currently home to a Restaurant and Pub called Marquarts Landing.

Please, try to not step on the shadows as you climb these stairs.
I saw this stairway at Roaring River State Park in Cassville, Missouri. The stairs climb a steep hill leading to the hiking trail which takes you to the observation platform overlooking a trout hatchery.

Yaird is a noun that means garden. Okay, so I'm showing off. Let's just go for simple and say yard. This is my favorite yard in town. I photographed this house more times than I can count. The yard changes with the four seasons and each is spectacular. This year's drought caused the summer version to be less colorful than usual so I have shared the spring version. Whether you call it a yaird, a garden or just a yard, this one is always a delight to the eye.
