We took this drive seeing all these covered bridges in 1 day, I figured since they are all so close together, why not share on the blog, all at once. Fun to see the similarities and differences. What a ball. Kind of rainy. Enjoyable trip. You have to go with the flow, if it rains you have to deal and just enjoy that trip no matter, what??! I am laughing due to how I did input the pictures; you think that the picture will stay in that order, but blogger (google) has a mind of its own. Oh well. All good. 2021. Hope you are well this week. Take Care. Beth ( ;

Great post! Yes, Blogger does not post pictures in order. If I want a particular one to show up as the thumbnail, I’ll post it first and then go back and add the other ones underneath it.
