1519 Latimer Closure

The saga of Latimer Bridge is a long one. This is the view looking up the hill from "The Outlet Road" along Red Horse Lake Road toward Latimer Bridge and the only way into our home. Making art is making memories.
The new bridge is now in place. I tried my best and most convincing debates to move it back to where the bridge spanned Lyndhurst Creek prior to 1913. The safety, security and the empathy of a bee-line path avoiding any intrusion into the front yard of my good neighbour, did not hold up against any added expense for a longer span. The image below shows the twisted detour to a slightly shorter span.
However, it is time to move forward... there is melting snow to paint before spring really does arrive.
