Last Sunday when the Chesapeake Bay Children and I were driving to Aaron's Beach (many thanks to Anonymous Mathews Native for explaining how that name came about --see her answer in yesterday's comments if you haven't read it yet, it's one moooving story involving cattle), I spotted this old car in the middle of the woods. Actually, I had taken a wrong turn and was going towards Bethel Beach down Knights Woods road and ended up turning around and going back the right way.
On our way to Aaron's Beach, this old car corpse jumped out at me from the middle of the woods. This year's leaves haven't grown in just yet, so the sunshine highlighted what otherwise would have been camouflaged with all the pine needles and dead leaves.
Old cars have always been fascinating to me. When I see one like this, completely left for dead and abandoned in the middle of nowhere, questions flood my
Who owned it?
What color was it? (Yes, I see the blue now that I study the picture.)
How many miles did it have on it?
What memorable events did this car transport people to?
Why did somebody leave it in the middle of the woods?
Whose property am I standing on as I take pictures of this dead car?
Due to the stress of taking the picture (or rather the stress of wondering when a carload of property owners was going to drive by and see me), I didn't have time to focus on the finer details of this vehicle, nor could I tell what kind it is.
Anyone have any guesses?
