Happy long weekend, Everyone! Hope you’re all having a superbly great one!
I wanted to show you these pictures I took near our house the other day while Chris and I were on a bike ride. We have this 10k loop that we do every once in awhile and every time I’m on it I always think to myself “Self, you know who might appreciate this beautiful rural landscape? My blog buddies, of course.”
Then, I realize I forgot my camera, again.
So this time I got my act together to show you. Plus, I can never resist a good cornfield picture.
About halfway through our loop, we always stop at this bridge that’s been closed to cars for a number of years now. This road isn’t used much any more, so it’s more just a wide gravel path.
The bridge crosses over what we call “The Big Creek”.
There isn’t much to the bridge any more.
We stand there and drink our water and look at the pretty countryside. Chris usually makes some smart alek comments. You can’t really tell how annoying he’s being from our shadows in this picture, can you?
I’m pretty sure he was making fun of me for taking a million pictures of this boring old creek at this point. But the sun was setting so nicely! He’s clearly just jealous of my photography skills.
(Note: He’s not jealous of my photography skills. He took photography classes in university and knows 1000 times more about it than I do. There, Chris, are you happy?)
Anyway, here’s a cornfield! There aren’t very many things I love more than a good cornfield. Really!
The sun got lower and it was time to start heading home. Hope you enjoyed this glimpse of the countryside around here.
And I hope you either get lots done on the Holiday tomorrow, or nothing at all, depending on what suits you best at the time!
