Two bridges

Standard

A long road trip yesterday for the wrong reasons, on a dark, dank, foggy winter day.  Two bridges admitted a little light.

One for the morning:  drinking tea above the weir, watching a small tourist craft execute a cautious three-point turn.

One for the afternoon:  the towers of the new Severn crossing rose small and ghostly in the mist, then suddenly unfolded their geometrical grandeur.

  1. Funny, in the last couple of weeks I’ve separately done both the long drive for the wrong reasons and that bridge (for the right reasons). I hope the wrong reasons were as good as they could have been.

    • Thank you and likewise hope yours was not unduly grim – we all have some tough journeys to make from time to time, of course. I believe it was George MacDonald who said ‘Some things must be neither more nor less than done’. So it’s fine so long as we did them.
