The Playhouse

About a week ago I decided to take an alternate way home from work on a Friday afternoon.  I only mention the day of the week because I sincerely believe it was the root cause of the extra 45 minute it added to my commute.  But this is one time you wont here me complaining about traffic.  While sitting on an old two lane road migrating north word at the speed of tortoise I spotted one of those signs that gets me excited.  No Trespassing.

I live in an area where there is a still a lot of horses, cows, longhorns,  etc roaming large back yards within the city limits.  So these signs are not uncommon and are usually posted for our protection.  What intrigued me about this one was the road it was blocking.  It had one of those state park looks and feels and definitely showed signs of age.

While continuing to wait in traffic I pulled out out my handy dandy iPhone to Google map myself and check out the area.  This day turned out to be gold.  From my digital birds eye view I spotted buildings and what appeared to be missing roofs.  I couldn’t resist checking it out by foot.  As soon as I could get off the main road I hoofed it in to get a quick first hand look of the area.  It was exactly what I was hoping for, the abandonment of buildings and construction equipment.

I headed home and began planning when I could get back with Camera in hand.

What I thought was going to be multiple buildings turned out to be one large long connected structure.  This I assume was the offices that the signs, if you could call them that, where indicating.
