Logan, Daddy and I wanted to go for a walk, and Daddy happened to bring up Stroud Preserve. When we got there we saw a horse and a bunch of yellow fields like in the picture to the left. We went on a horse trail up really high,I was really scared. If you were to look down you would see a  part of Brandywine creek and lots of trees. When we were done that trail we went home.

Jackson Sawmill Covered Bridge (1878)

Georgetown/Oxford, Chester County [38-36-33]

Daddy PROMISED this would be our last bridge FOREVER!

Especially because it really smells of cow poop,,,

and all I can hear is mooing!

Daddy says they are just hungry… Just like our cat, Joy, when she is hungry…

Move this was…

We then got back in the car, and drove to pick up my brother at daycare.

It was a fun day, in a weird way…

and then the next day, Daddy showed me this picture!

10/18/2012 – Notes from a talk given at the Citadel Credit Union about the Covered Bridges of the Oxford area.

After my presentation, I met many folks and one of those folks was Randy Teel of RNJ Plaques & Engravings, who had a story about Pine Grove bridge from 1973.

He told me, that he and a friend were driving home, and as they approached the bridge, they noticed some flames inside the bridge, and as they got closer, it was burning oil rags.

Because there were no cell phones, they had no way to quickly contact any additional help, but were able to use the available 10 gal “Indian” water tanks to put out the fire, then driving on to find a phone to report the incident to the police.

Randy and his friend, continued to drive home, and found another small fire on  Bell Bank Bridge, and were able to put this fire out, but decided not to report it, because it might not look very good.

White Rock Forge Covered Bridge (1849)

White Rock Forge Covered Bridge (1849)

Kirkwood, Lancaster County [38-36-18]

After stopping at Wawa to get something to drink and eat, we got into the car, and started to drive and drive and drive.

At first we were going fast, because we were on the highway, but after a long time, we turned and turned on to smaller and smaller roads.

Some times it smelled like poop. Yucky!

Finally, we got there, this what I saw…
