In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “On the Way.”
“In-between moments can be just as memorable as grand finales. This week, share a photo you took on the way to something else.”
“The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.”
~ Proverbs 16:9
We celebrated a wedding this weekend, a lovely young lady we’ve known since she was born was wedded to an outstanding young man. We so enjoyed the day. The location they chose to make their vows to one another is one of our favorite destinations. My husband and I both love Ocean City, New Jersey . When our boys were young we vacationed there every summer. There are countless happy memories connected to this lovely beach town.
During the years we vacationed in OC, the way into the town was either the Ninth Street, or Thirty-Fourth Street Bridge. Both were narrow and rickety, but did their job and brought carloads of people onto the island. Today, a new modern bridge has replaced the Ninth Street bridge. The photo above is my first “In Between Moments” photograph, taken through the front windshield of our car as we drove on the new Ninth Street Bridge.
The next photo, is also taken through the front windshield of our moving car, this time on a road that cuts through part of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. At this point we are almost halfway home from our day “down the shore.” We call this stretch of woods “The Enchanted Forest/Woods.” We often stop to photograph the russet and green tones of forest floor, trees and mosses. The ground is low, and dead limbs and stumps become natural works of art as they age. Everything in the forest is dangerously dry now; we are in a bit of a drought here on the east coast, but rain is on the way. Soon everything will become soft and green once more.
Thanks for riding along with me and taking a look at my “in-between” places as I traveled to my destinations this weekend.
