🎵 Country Roads, Take Me Home . . . 🎵

Or to Wadhurst.

From the bus window as we waited to leave the Wadhurst rail station, the greens and whites and browns across the road called to me and said, "Take our picture!" So I did.

We were on a bus because there were weekend rail works happening on the way to Battle, the site of the Battle of Hastings in 1066. It turned out to be an interesting ride– about 50 miles an hour on a narrow road, on the "wrong" side of the road (I'm American, you see). And of course we had opted to sit on the upper level of a double-decker, branches sweeping the windows as we raced by.

We did get views of some of the towns along the way that we might have missed on the train. For example, we crossed an intersection in Robertsbridge with the naughty sounding name of Poppinghole Lane. Later, I discovered that Paul McCartney actually wrote a ditty about that street.

Anyway, this is for the #joinindaily theme, which today is "The Beautiful Countryside." +Johnny Wills is the theme curator.
