Plymouth, even though geographically it's the largest municipality in the State of Massachusetts, only has about 60,000 people. Much of the town is not heavily developed and trees and a rural feel are common. The Old Sandwich Road is supposedly the oldest public road in the United States. It is along the route of a well travelled walking path that was used by the Native American Wampanoag tribe before the arrival of the pilgrims.
Sometimes I walk along and with no other traffic, it seems like I am the only one on the planet. There is barely a sound except an occasional birdsong or a light breeze whispering through the pines to break the silence.
Some folks want the road paved and some don't. While that debate continues, I'll continue to enjoy slowly walking or driving along its bumpy rutted length and seeing the light slicing through the forest.
