On a recent motorcycle ride I went past this property, and because I love old, abandoned structures, it caught my eye, and I decided that I was going to return, so, I did. This was the Dwight Correctional Center, located just west of Dwight, Illinois. It was the state’s only Level One maximum-security adult female facility. It was opened in 1930 and closed in 2013. The buildings are beautiful, in a sad way, and I will return to further explore this 160 acre location.
A beautiful, if stormy, start to the day.
The ‘nook is short for my home town, Minooka, Illinois. We ended Monday night with a rainbow and beautiful sunset – both taken from my front porch. The cactus flower is in the garden in front of our house. The sunrise is just a 2 minute walk from my home. What does the beauty around your home look like?
A spectacular sky greeted me on the way home after a violent rainstorm came through our little town.
…to the max today.
A bitter, cold sunset (we have been spoiled with warm weather lately) helps bring Thursday to an end. I am pretty sure there are more wind turbines than people in Ransom, Illinois.
One more from a recent trip to Starved Rock State Park.
Didn’t know it was tugboat Tuesday! Hope you have a wonderful day!
Well, 2019 is as busy as ever. Trying to get back into the WordPress groove. This is how last Saturday made her bow. Well played, Saturday… well played.
