so so day
photos: I had not taken a pic for about two weeks. Last week - pretty much all week - I was down with the flu and didn't even pick up my camera. Yesterday I decided I would go out and about and go SE of London. I ended up going through Tillsonberg and Woodstock. Wasn't a great day for pics. Well, the weather was fine. But the area between Tillsonberg and and the 401 is boring. Not much inspiration.
I did find the above bridge which crosses Otter Creek parallel to HWY3 south of Tillsonberg. It is a working rail bridge and quite long. Well over 150m I would estimate. I didn't walk across it as that would have been a little fool hardy. So I ended up going under it and bush crashing till I got to the bottom. I took some pics underneath of the structure and at various points on the way down. I startled some deer too as I was blazing a trail. Was the first time this year I broke a sweat and was warm outside. A pleasant change.
At the bottom, it was not possible to cross Otter Creek and go up the otherside. I had noped to be able to do it before I started down, but there was no way and I had spent better part of an hour at the bridge and hadn't intended to do that. At the bottom I came across two women out with their small babies in chest papoose kinda carriers out for a walk. I figured that if they got down there then there was an easier way out and asked them. Sure enough I could have almost driven down there. :)
It took about 15 mins to hike back to the car and then I headed North through Tillsonberg and ultimately stopped in a Timmies in Woodstock for a coffee. Nice to get outside, but 100km of driving wasn't really worth it this time. I did stop by and see Mandy and Jesse on the way home and we talked a bit about a cowgirl photoshoot we want to do sometime soon. She has a hat now which will work nicely. :)
Rainy today. ah well. 50% good weather is good. :)
