" Cedarhurst " Part 2

Welcome back friends! The above sculpture was one of my absolute favorites ! When Katie and I walked out of the woods there it sat. I wanted to run to it and have her take a photo of me or her in one of the "Pods". Aptly named I think. Katie would have no part of my fun however as she chatted away on her phone! I am so happy that I am not a fifteen year old.

After further walking through the beautiful woods we came across this sculpture which is "Untitled" by an artist from Carbondale. 

 I couldn't get this entire sculpture in the shot if I stood too close, so I would click on "The Big Bang" for a better look!

I love this one too. It is called "Crossroads" and it is designed out of copper. I apologize for not being able to get closer for some of these but as I said in the last post, we were very pressed for time. I am still frustrated that I didn't get to see them all. But I will return soon to get shots of the ones that I missed. 

The one above reminded me of a giant, shiny gong! It is called "Shiny Moon" and is stainless steel. It is VERY tall !

I tried to get Katie to go inside of this giant nest for a photo but, well, you know! I couldn't find the name for this but I would call it " Huge Nest" !

Two different views of the same sculpture. I'm sorry I couldn't get the name of this one either. 

This is one of the sculptures that I drive past all of the time on the way to church. It is called "Time Tunnel" and is made out of steel.

O.K. one more sculpture for tonight. As I said there are Many of them. Fifty-three to be exact! But not to worry, I didn't get them all. I hope to go back in the very near future when I can take my time and really explore what else may be in those woods!

Unfortunately I couldn't get the name for this one either but it reminded me of Noah's Ark. I will post the rest of my Cedarhurst tour next week.

Well that's it for tonight folks. My husband is home early this weekend. We have a wedding to go to Saturday evening. My daughter-in-law, Amy's, sister is getting married. We met Laura when she was eight. My granddaughters age. Where does time go?  

I hope that your weekend is everything that you wish it to be!
Love Di ♥

Hi Diana!
Oh I missed your posts this week! I went back for a visit. Last night was a huge retirement party for one of my colleagues that I had to plan... Phew... it went well, but I cam home an sleep came quickly!
It was a big job!
So glad to have a plain ole' night.

Your time at Cedarhurst looks beautiful and so well deserved.
When you wrote ~ The weather and the woods were beautiful and calming ~ I was so glad to read that... You really needed a calming time.

The reflections, all the leaves, the sweet aroma of autumn . . . it's one of my favorite times ♥

The "Crossroads" photo really caught my eye... I enlarged that one to the max. How twinkly it is!

Very pretty, Diana!

*have a restful weekend*

I visited the site you linked to in the last post Di. You truly have a nice place to visit and so close to home! Maybe Jake can go back with you and you can sit by that beautiful lake.

Loved the tour Di!

Hi Di,
Enjoy the wedding, and your weekend. I love Cedarhurst, and it makes me want to get out and take pictures of the beauty that surrounds me here in St. Albert. We have many walking paths, and some sculptures too...similar to the ones at Cedarhurst. So glad you are posting and feeling better.
(((HUGS))) T

Those are some really interesting sculptures. It looks like the weather was pretty nice that day too.

What a beautiful place to visit!

A very interesting array of statuary. I took my teenage granddaughter to Charleston, SC, a while back and she missed so much by being on the phone almost the entire time.
