Stone Arch Bridge

“A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine building should be seen by morning light, at noon and by moonlight.” 
-Robertson Davies

Sarah is one of my very best friends (you may remember that we were going to move to New Orleans together). This summer she's working at a farm near Keene NH so yesterday morning I drove up to see her.

It was so much fun! The farm she's at looks great and we sat in the yard drinking moskato and chatting. That's pretty much our thing: give us a bottle of wine and we can talk for hours.

Unfortunately all good things must end, so I headed back to the seacoast after only a three hours visit. Despite the 2+ hour drive ahead of me (or maybe because of it), I couldn't help stopping at this state landmark. What makes these great old bridges awesome is that they were built with no mortar, just good planning and gravity.If you're in the area it's a nice little break from the scenic one lane highway views, so pull over and dip your toes in the water.

I also stopped at Chesterfield Gorge, but left when I realized it was just two hills with water running between them (that's also why there are no pictures of it). Yes, by definition the sign was accurate, but I feel like this particular stream was being slightly misrepresented.


  1. Cool pics ! How are you doing ?

  2. Hey Wolf! I'm not back, but REALLY missing regular internet access:) Hope all's great in your neck of the woods.
