The new is encroaching into the old. This is one of several barns on a farm that is catty-cornered across the main road from our house. The concrete pillars in the background support the automatic toll tag reader on the newly constructed toll road.
You can not see the toll road from our home, but we do see it on our morning walk.
This is only a small vignette of an absolutely beautiful horse farm. If you look closely, you can see the cars traveling the toll road.
I have mixed emotions about the road. Since we can't see it, I can pretend it is not there. But, it makes getting to often frequented places much faster. However, I fear all the beautiful pasture land that it runs through will soon be developed. Having never lived in a town or city except for one short period of time, I'm not sure if I am ready for all the headaches congestion can bring.
