What Would The World Be Like Without Bridges?

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,
