We were stuck in a day-long series of traffic jams travelling from Cranston, RI to Manheim, PA to the last family visit of our Easter road trip, . Grenville
told about it ranted in an earlier post. Thankfully, to sustain us we had the memories of a wonderful grand Easter visit and a package of candy from Grenville’s aunt.
Here’s a visual of the traffic jam as we approached the GW Bridge. Notice the speed limit posting vs. the actual speedometer reading – 45 mph would have been like speeding in this jam.Things were better as we were leaving PA and drove through some scenic farmlands in Lancaster County.When this lone tree and distant barn caught my attention, I shot it in landscape and portrait modes with selected coloration and semi-B&W. All were done straight in the Canon PowerShot S130 camera with no additional digital editing . ..
Seeing these beautiful sights after a frustrating early start, and a great visit with fellow blogger Doris/Fun Fahn Times (who also likes Panera Bread stops) reminded us that we shouldn’t sweat the small stuff – even traffic tie-ups.
But just to be on the safe side next time we travel this route, we’re avoiding the George Washington Bridge and taking the Tappan Zee instead – no matter WHAT the GPS suggests – cause it’s not driving the route.
