Autumn Road


Some roads you take with a purpose in mind, but I prefer roads that lead to the unexpected.  I took these photos on an old farm road that hugs the Connecticut River near my husband's hometown.  We were just wandering when we discovered Cruise, who, according to the sign on his fence, gets bellyaches from apples, but loves carrots, and can eat as many as you give him.  


Sadly, we had no carrots, but we made promises to Cruise for our next visit.  I suppose this means that this little back road will now have a purpose.  


Somehow I think it will still hold plenty of surprises, too.
