Deciding which topic to share today is taking way too much time. I have returned from my trip, as of last night, and I am blaming travel fatique for my not being able to decide which choice to make. I want to do both. I am excited about my new photos, but also I can't wait to get back out on Route 32 to take even more photos. (And then there are the milkweed plants in our field which have grown, well, like weeds since I have been gone.) BUT as I write myself through this decision, I am thinking the flowers in the gardens in France and England, the train stations I passed through, and the views from the Vosges mountains will have to wait. I don't want to lose the thread of that road and a community whose future is up for grabs.
Once again, I find a parking place and take several photos from one location:
This building will surely be gone. It was once a store. Darlene remembers being bought a pair of shoes here when she was young!
Then I turned around to look across the road to see the other side of things, including this sign on a fence, the cows, and the lay of the land:
|Route 32, facing toward where I am headed|
Nearby, I had taken this side road, just to see what is close to Route 32.
A few photos from this road that look back toward Route 32, along which are all the buildings in the next three photos:
also here on the woods side -- the early blooming sarvis tree blossoms -- our sign of spring
To finish today's chapter of this story, a morning mist along Route 32:
I will try to find this place again this week and take a photo of what it looks like with GREEN LEAVES now that summer is almost here. Stay tuned -- and drive safely no matter what road you may be taking.
please note: I have recently added two photos to last week's post, about an afternoon walk in France.
