Country roads are part of my everyday life. I constantly enjoy the roads I must travel to go anywhere. City folk sometime hate driving on our metal covered roads just as don't care for multi-lane highways. My nature is now better suited to meandering along country roads, appreciating and enjoying my surroundings.
Thank you, Gordon for this weeks' theme. To see the country roads in other parts of the world, go here. For once I have more than enough photos and the hardest part is which ones to use. All my photos today are taken along our road to and from the farm.
On a foggy morning it's hard to see the one lane bridge at the foot of the hill below my driveway
and roads into farms along the way are gobbled up by the fog
On a warm sunny day you could be startled by my son taking visitors for a picnic
or a stock truck kicking up plenty of dust
Here comes Marshall, our neighbour and vet
When there is a shortage of grass, cattle sometime graze along "The Long Acre"
In winter, when we get most of our rain, the little creek beside the road loses its peacefulness...
and creeps very close to the road.
It overflows occasionally and when that happens we have an extremely long drive, up through the hill country at the back of the farm, to get to town.
The water pours down out of the mountains, sometimes crossing the road...
and tumbles off down the other side
Along our road, there is only one side road, a no exit, providing access to farms
There are interesting gates along the side of the road
A neighbour's vegie patch - it's hard not to covet his cabbages every time I drive past.
(Yeah, I know, it's sad when all you covet about your neighbour is his cabbages!)
Hope you enjoyed the trip down my country road.
