How things change, even in one person’s lifetime. This is Kirkdale Bridge on the A75 (between Gatehouse and Carsluith) – actually bypassed by the modern A75, but once an essential part of it. We travelled this way (in an Austin Mini) in the early 60s and stayed in Glenluce. So we must have passed over this bridge. Now disused it crosses the Kirkdale Burn as it always did and the roadway disappears into a thicket.

A reminder from John Ruskin, . . .
“There is no wealth but life. Life, including all its powers of love, of joy, and of admiration. That country is the richest which nourishes the greatest numbers of noble and happy human beings; that man is richest, who, having perfected the functions of his own life to the utmost, has also the widest helpful influence, both personal, and by means of his possessions, over the lives of others.”
From “Unto this Last”, 1860.
