High Bridge Trail, Farmville, Virginia

Edwin, Randy, Bonnie, Trudy. We left Farmville about 10:30am, biked east about 15 miles at a leisurely pace to our picnic at the abrupt end of the trail in the woods near Burkeville. Then back, stopping here and there when we felt like it, including here at the bridge about 3:15pm.
Here’s a photo of the bridge displayed by FarmvilleVa.com:

Simultaneous primary elections for Democratic nomination for US Congress and Republican nomination for US Senate (but you can only vote in one). We counted 139 D ballots, 404 R ballots, and 543 voters, about 10% of our precinct’s registered voters.
