And that's not all. This bridge is at a new nature park I recently discovered! It's a small place that isn't as close to home as some of my others, but I've recently found myself passing by this place very frequently. I was just lucky enough to see the sign for the place the first time.
Then when I stopped here for the first time I saw this bridge in the distance! I was in heaven! I actually have several more pictures than I'm showing here because I took pictures at every step of the way. After all, this wasa huge event for me.
I took my first steps onto the wooden planks.
barn swallows. I knew I had to be cautious with these birds because I know from personal experience that they aggressively protect their nests. And the bridge had a number of nests up in the rafters.
I got no pictures of the birds because they were flying around rapidly, and my interest was still exclusively in this bridge. I took the time to get pictures of the nests though. The wood of the bridge seems relatively new in here. Maybe this bridge isn't as old as I initially thought. That's fine with me.
I walked slowly moving across the bridge until I got to the end. I would say that I regretted stepping off of it, but there were new wonders on the other side! And the feeling of walking the bridge was still surrounding me with a total joy. This is why I do what I do.
