Guess Where Wednesday Weekly Mystery Photo Contest at 365Barrington.com

238. Guess Where Wednesday" & Last Week’s Winner

 It’s funny how powerful the senses can be. Beautiful music that brings back memories of my childhood makes me well up the minute I hear it. When I’m feeling nervous on an airplane and my husband holds my hand, I instantly feel (a little) more relaxed.

Can you guess where in Barrington I took this picture? You’ve probably driven past this sign a million times and we have a great prize for the winner of this new photo contest.
