The fork in the road....

Sometimes you come to a fork in the road ...literally. We were rather surprised to find this fork in Red Hook, NY.

There are not too many covered bridges left in Connecticut like other New England states. (As far as I know there are only three.)

The West Cornwall bridge is a rather famous and a popular tourist destination in the summer. As you can see, it's one lane wide. There can be a real traffic jam at times as people are in line waiting for turns to cross it. It looked a little sad and lonely yesterday on a wintry day.

Despite the fact it snowed in the morning, it was actually 50 degrees int he afternoon and there was a hint...a dash...a whisper...a promise of spring.

Enjoy your day...and the coming weekend...and perhaps you will find a fork in a road!

I love the fork in the road. Just love it. I'm thinking how cool it would be to be out in the country in the middle of nowhere. There is a place where we lived call the "four forks". Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

Oh gosh! How interesting that is!

I sure bet you guys are ready for some spring like weather.

I love old covered bridges like that. I think, if I remember correctly, we only have one in our state. I'm going to have to look it up.
