The Burfordville Bridge in Bollinger, Missouri.
So very picturesque don't you think?
It is situated right next to Bollinger Mill which was a neat place to visit as well and a nice addition to our trip.
This is the view from the other side of the bridge.
There was also a cute a little antique shop right across the street (that I forgot to get a picture of....foooey). The prices there were very good and I almost bought something but I have been trying to refrain from making any home decor purchases until after we get our new house....so I left the little treasure behind. Whaaa!
Yes, I am STILL waiting for our house to sell. Lots of lookers and a few who have looked twice. It's just a matter of time and all will happen. I still have faith, trust and hope in the Lord that it will be soon!!
Anyway, we had a terrific time picnicking, playing ball, antiquing and just enjoying family time together on such a gorgeous spring day here in Missouri.
Here is a little collage of all four of Missouri's covered bridges....
It's funny, the Burfordville and Locust Creek bridges look exactly alike. I did not know that until I put this collage together but I assure you they are two different bridges in two totally different towns a few hundred miles away from each other. Pretty neat if I do say so myself!
My next goal is to someday go to Indiana's covered bridge festival. It takes place every October and is a traveling festival. You travel from town to town to see each of the covered bridges. There are food vendors, shops and markets and lots of things to enjoy along the way. I can't wait for that!!!
Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE COVERED BRIDGES? To me they are incredibly beautiful!
Since I've seen all of Missouri's covered bridges I now have to come up with new ideas for this years day trips. Do you know of any fun places in Missouri that we should visit? Do tell!!!
