Every time I drive away from my house, making a left turn to go to the main road, I pass this farm.  There is an unpaved road that appears to go nowhere.  I looked it up on Google Earth and found out it goes in a big circle.  I have been fascinated by this "road to nowhere" since I first noticed it.  The other day, I finally decided to drive up there and have a look.  (Very Nancy Drew of me, I like to think.)  These are some of the photos I took:

We live near an international airport.  On this morning, I noticed a network of contrails in the sky.  I thought of people flying in all different directions, while I stand here in this quiet, isolated spot.

It was a cool, frosty morning and the sun was bright.  I love this kind of autumn morning.

When we first moved here, I was missing the hustle and bustle of the big city.  Now I have come to love the countryside around me.

Lovely pictures Judy.
We lived near an airport for a while. One day there was the most unbearable noise - the windows shook, dogs howled, - I put my fingers in my ears.
I rang up the airport to find out why such a shocking noise should be inflicted on the public, to find out that it was the Prime Minister's plane.
Probably more interesting and peaceful in the days when the king passed through the village with his horse-drawn carriage!

Fortunately, we don't get much noise from the airport. It's about five miles from us, so I guess that's enough distance.

When I was growing up, though, we lived near an Air Force base. In those days, they were flying B-52s, which were huge and very noisy. Every time one went over, the whole house shook.

I wonder why the prime Minister's plane was especially noisy?

Thank you! I drove past the scene on my way home, went in and got my camera and drove back to take photos.
