Watery Wednesday

Posted by Lorac Tuesday, 28 September 2010

Along a country road I saw another unusual old bridge with a wonderful little inviting creek running under it. The water is very clear and not very deep. I could see many little fish swimming around. Often these creeks will have small trout in them. Speckled are the most common and sometimes Brown Trout too. The creek is lined with tall cedars and in the creek at the side there is a little patch of the brown cedar seed husks. We live in an area where there are lots of little creeks, streams and some large rivers too. Travel down almost any country road and you will go over little creeks or rivers. 

This bridge is quite old and in need of repair or soon it will be gone! It is only one lane to cross it but there is little traffic on this road. Only local home owners.

    Do you write poetry, if not, I feelt that you should, your descriptions are very poetic.

  8. Wish I could go on a country road trip without any real destination. Just drive and stop whenever I fancy to check out a creek or see a wildflower up close.

    Your post is so dreamy.

  10. Carole Anne, I did write poetry at one time. Life got into the way and it has been quite awhile since I wrote any. Perhaps it is time to start again?

  14. I've never seen a bridge of that shape before! it would be a shame to let it fall down, and replace it with something more ordinary!

  20. the creek is beautiful. must be a great place to stay cool at summertime. the old bridge is terrific. wonderful photos.

  21. So mystical to me. I just love the emptiness of the scenery. In the city there are always people and it's really hard to have some peace.

  23. You can bet if that bridge is replaced and not repaired. that it will not be nearly so majestical.
