How About Some Bridges and Beverages?

We searched for many of the old wooden covered bridges (love them!) marked on our maps. We became somewhat obsessed by locating all of them which I think we did. I can't post all of my pictures but here are a few.

Thanks, Kim, for my card! I would love to treat my daughter and daughter-in-law to their favorite Starbucks beverages!


Have a great Friday!

  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm your newest follower!

    Love your bridge pics. We lived in Lancaster County, PA for 9 months several years ago. I couldn't get enough of their covered bridges!

  3. I've never seen a covered bridge much less been across one. Are these in Texas? If so I'd love to find out where. Got to love Starbucks! :) Carol

  8. I had never seen a covered bridge until I married...there was an old one in the county we lived in at that time...it was not maintained so it seemed kind of creepy to me...

    The ones in your pictures look lovely!

  22. Hi Diana,
    Thanks for dropping over yesterday. Good to hear from you hon! Some how I missed this blog that you have cause I always have gone to the cooking blog. Have been missing out, you have some very nice posts!! I too, love covered bridges, they are simply fascinating to me for some reason.
    I have always wondered why they decided to cover them or why didn't they cover all bridges?? I am
    sure there is probably some reason somewhere!! lol
    These are just great pics....I enjoyed them so much. Maybe in the future you can share all the ones you have seen just a few pics at a time.
    I have never seen any like the 2nd & 3rd pic.
    Thanks for sharing these neat pics with us.
    Hope you have a delightful weekend,
    Blessings, Nellie

  24. One of the best things in New England is covered bridges, at least I think so! I was excited to find one out here in California when we moved here. :0)
