This gate, that separates the McCompound from that world on the other side, is always locked. If you look through the gap you can't see much. For the longest time I thought it might be some kind of industrial storage space. But when I finally got to the other side, I found...
This pool. I have a better shot, but this one better reflects the setting. It's a trailer park.
This is the nicest row of trailers. I kind of like that red and white number. And when I went back to get the photos, I discovered what I thought was the cesspool pond was really just a huge puddle that had dried out now.
But the pond is at the end of that road. It's bigger than I thought and surprisingly doesn't smell.
I missed the two best shots on this walk. In front of one the trailers that are there at the terminal end of the road, was a residual puddle. There was a big fat robin, joyously taking a bath in it. And behind him were some chickens scratching at the edge of the road. But the robin flew off when I pointed my camera and the chickens ran back into their yard.
I suppose I'll never get another shot at the robin, but I'll go back and try to get the chickens again because I discovered an easier way to get there than crawling under the gate.
