Bridges

I was reading the news headlines this morning and came across this one...

Marathon span: World's longest sea bridge opens 

I click over to read the article and find that this bridge spans 26.4 across the Jiaozhou Bay in China..man am I glad I won't be driving in China. Heck I have a hard time driving across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and it's only 20 miles across the lower Chesapeake Bay and while I've only done it  a handful of times.  

This kind of bridge is more my speed...

we lived about a mile from this bridge in Merrimack New Hampshire and I still have fond memories of taking our golden retriever Maggie down to Babossic Brook....and ya know that is one of the things I miss about living up North..the beauty...So you choose, which bridge would you rather go over, a 26.4 mile span full of concrete or this beautiful covered bridge painted red that spans a little brook?

until next time...

Be Kind..

  2. O, for sure the covered bridge you have pictured above! Have you ever been over the "Nice" bridge in MD, on 301? That is a hard one too. I had to go over each way on Tuesday, and I was proud to say I had only a little fluttering going on. Bridges are NOT my fav. Been over the Chesapeake bridge also - also NOT something I like to do. I'd rather not go. lol. Betchya miss N.E., eh? My parents were from Maine. I love all of N.E. Sigh....

  3. I grew up not too far from there. My sis still lives in the area and recently purchased a house in Merrimack. The area is beautiful in spite of the bears and turkeys in the back yard.
