Google sometimes shows what was, not what is or what will be
We had a wet but interesting walk through more of the apparently infinite Ardmore section of Winston-Salem on Wednesday night. While we walked we reflected on the slippage between reality and the Google view of the world, which we see when we use Path Tracker. A case in point is found in last week's trek through a new development called Millhouse Place, which is located just off Robinhood Road. Compare the promotional sign with the Google view of our world...use the outline of the lake for orientation. Neither, of course, is a true view of the world as it is, as most of the Millhouse Place lots are currently unbuilt.
