I've admired this barn for years but the lack of any sort of shoulder has prevented me from being able to pull over and record this fine setting for posterity. That was until Good Friday. The Artist and I were headed into town to break our male twin imposed fast of meat for Lenten by searching out a good fish and chip restaurant.
It was a beautiful day in these parts so I grabbed my camera, 'just in case' and as we passed here I sighed how I longed to get a good shot of this barn but how I could never pull over. The Artist turned around, dropped me off and I snapped away while he zipped back and forth along the road. Luckily the nearest cross road was recently upgraded with a roundabout which made turning around easy peasy. Roundabouts have become quite fashionable in these parts as various municipalities have begun to install them everywhere and I daresay that I love them. They calm traffic, eliminate dangerous left hand turns, prevent unnecessary idling which in turn reduces oil consumption and reduces emissions and they are much more pleasing to the eye than a set of traffic lights any day. Their only drawback is that many people don't understand how to use them. The trick is to yield to those who are already on, once they've passed you, hop on!
Tell me dear readers, are roundabouts popping up in your neck of the woods?
~Be well friends~
