Border: The part or edge of a surface or area that forms its outer boundary.
The choices are endless.
Border of a plate.
Border design on fabric.
Speaking of borders, In a Better Homes and Garden magazine I once saw a really cute border between a lawn and garden made of china.

I digress. Border ideas. With it being summer and all and traveling from one place to another there are borders or division of one state or country from another.
As you may know, from past scavenger hunt posts, we did take a little road trip and in the process I found, saw, and crossed many borders.
Borders dividing states:
On the huge suspension bridge, which now handles vehicle traffic transversing back and forth from Nevada and Arizona instead of the old two lane highway on Hoover Dam, there is a plague on the state line you can see if you walk the bridge.
Borders dividing time lines:
Borders that affect water drainage:
Number one reason?
It is so beautiful.
And so dang long!

The continental divide is comprised of mountain ranges. The two largest being the Rocky mountains and the Andes. Rainfall, snow melt, and any water really will drip, wind, meander, trickle in one of two directions. Everything on the west of the Divide drains into the Pacific Ocean and anything on the east will take a much longer trip to the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, or Caribbean Oceans.
I wouldn't mind being in the Caribbean Ocean.
On road trips we use to hear and then repeat fables about the Continental Divide, like when you flush a toilet or drain the tub on the eastern side of the divide the water twirls down the drain in one direction and on the western side it's the opposite way.
Well, my lovelies, have a great day and don't let borders hold you in. Spread your wings and fly off to new horizons.
