What Would The World Be Like Without Bridges?

What would the world be like without bridges? Primitive. These beautiful structures we often take for granted are miraculous structures that connects us in a million ways to places, islands, jobs, people, etc.

I love bridges. It’s hard to find one that’s not interesting or lovely in its own way. Bridges are the “big connectors” that simplify our daily lives. Any bridge over the water is gorgeous, and so are the old rusty ones hidden away from us on roads less traveled and out of the way country roads. The mixed hues of blues, aquas, greens and browns, blend the structures into the natural surrounding landscape and stirs my desire to grab a seat and stay awhile. Just like a scene setting you would see from a Nicholas Sparks movie.

I traveled the state of Alabama for years, and yes its true, the bridges are epic. I was lucky enough to get a peek at the famous “Bridges of Madison County from the movie starring Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep, (great love story).

I can’t isolate the one thing that attracts my eye to bridges, but I do enjoy them. How about you? Do you have a certain bridge that you love? Do you ever experience nostalgia when you cross bridges?

Happy trails,

  1. I always loved the drawbridge between Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, Me. It could be easily avoided, instead opting for the massive four lane bridge just up the road that took you to the same destination, but I was always left a bit earlier just in case it was drawing up. Nice post. Made me think about the intentional choice I made so often, but never gave much deep thought as to why…
