Barn Charm, Friday Fences, here is one for Bridges




I took the back way home .............. across this old one lane bridge across an irrigation canal.



















Looking back across the bridge, the fence on the right side of the bridge must be to prevent people from throwing trash into the water above the weir under the bridge.

















Rushing water coming under the bridge

















and such a peaceful steam above the bridge, on the right there are several houses that back up to the waterway.   


















All the canals are full to the top here now to provide water to all the orchards and farms in the area, in a couple more months and this will be down to just a slow trickle of water.

  2. it might also be to prevent anyone from jumping off the bridge into the water on that side since it looks so peaceful and slow and then getting trap in the current at the weir under the bridge.
