Warning: This is not a fashion post!
Hubby & I were out this past weekend looking for this popular bridge a friend told us about. Had to drive 3 miles on a narrow dirt road (4 wheel drive recommended), a
long short walk down the trail and voila! An old bridge built over a tranquil river! What a gorgeous scenery! The bridge was built in the 70’s – not terribly old, but it did NOT look too sturdy to me….it squeaked and swayed as you walked across. No, I didn’t like it very much and neither did Tobi ~ poor thing, his tail was between his legs all the while we were crossing the bridge.
You’d think after living in this town for almost 20 years, we would have known about this jewel of a place. What a nice site to set up a tent and spend some time enjoying mother nature!
The point of this post? There isn’t one 😉 ~ only a reminder (to self) to get to know your town and get out more! 😀
To my cyber friend Judy in Texas, Happy Birthday! Wishing you a FANTABULOUS day!
A happy reunion!
Until next time, happy trails!
P.S. Could you contact me if you’re having problems commenting on my posts? Apparently, for some of you, the WordPress is not allowing comments unless you have an account. I have it set up so anyone can comment, but it must not be working correctly. Btw, I did some research last night and found that if your email is linked to WordPress (even if you don’t have a blog anymore), it prompts you to sign in before you can comment. Not sure why they’re making this so difficult. Anywho, let me know by using the Contact Me page. Thank you, thank you! 🙂
Ooooh, I like to hike but for some reason, bridges freak me out! You were brave crossing it and looked good doing it. 🙂
You and Tobi are so cute together! Poor little scared Tobi.:-( What scenery… fantastic! Love your smile and the happy photos Jeannie. Cute, casual and for sure, stylish! xo
Thank you Rachel!
Yeah, Tobi was scared, but he followed his mama all the way to the end. He’s a trooper! LOVE him!
So picturesque. Looks like a bridge over untroubled water. 🙂
“A bridge over untroubled wate.” I like that!! 🙂
Thanks for visiting!
What a beautiful place ! I love your cool look, you’re always chic !
Thank you Christel! 🙂
Still stylish despite not being fashion based – I guess you can take fashion away from the post but not from YOU!
Anyway, the images are breath-taking and it’s good to have a bit of adrenaline here and there – I hear it is good for the skin!!
Thank you Edita!
Good for your skin? I’d better really get out more! 😉
i know you said it was not a fashion post but I still liked your outfit! I love adventures like this, anything new, exciting and with a hint of danger is just up my street! Although the walk sounded a bit scary over the bridge! Good to have adventures though 🙂
No, not too fashionable but thank you!
I’m trying to be active….a little bit of adventure should keeps you young at heart?! I hope! 🙂
Your outfit is great even if tis not a fashion post. I love personal style that makes sense. Though it would be a great place for a fashion shoot. Love that bridge!
Thank you Heather!
Hubby thought it would be a great spot, too. Due to the remote location, it’s not too practical…I would have to be a super dedicated blogger to go thru all that trouble for a fashion shoot. 😉
Get to know your town! Great advice! So many folks complain ‘there’s nothing to do here in X-ville’ as an excuse to stay glued to the TV and computer. Get out and live! Looks like a great adventure!
Any new adventures your way? I sure do miss you!
It looks like a beautiful place. I know what you mean too: I’ve lived in this city for six years and my friend showed me a park in the middle of it that had an old bunker from the Korean war in it (I live in Korea). I had no idea it was there. Gotta love finding new places. 🙂
You live in Korea? My son worked in Seoul for the past 3 yrs and just returned home. He loved it there but this mama wanted him closer to home. I think he missed his family, too. Anyway, how do you like living in Korea? I was born there but have lived in the states most of my life. Our visit to Seoul 2 years ago was incredible…..reminded me of NYC!
Yeah, Seoul is a pretty big city. Our city in the south is much smaller, only about 650,000 people. This is my 8th year here, although I think we’ll move back after this year. It’s hard being so far from family for so long.
It seems you both had a great time! You post reminded me of this wonderful movie, ‘The bridges of Madison county’….. 🙂
Can I ask what type of camera you use? It makes GREAT pictures! Have a great weekend, discovering maybe more fantastic places near-by, Katherine
Clint Eastwood! Good movie! 🙂
Hubby took these photos with a Canon T2I. He uses 50mm lens on most of the shots I post.
Thank you and wishing you a terrific weekend as well!
Love the beautiful scenery and your beautiful chic! And of course your little dog is beautiful, too:-)
As a dog lover, I pretty much melt when I see photos of dogs…big, small…all types, really. Just LOVE them! I know you do, too. 🙂
Wishing you a fabulous weekend!
That place was an awesome find! BTW, you make even hike wear fashionable:)
Yeah, it is a gem of a place. Can’t wait to go back, it’s going to be very pretty in the fall.
Thank you for your compliment but in reality, I wore the hat to protect my head from critters, jeans to protect my legs from bugs & poison ivy, and a long sleeve shirt to protect my arms from mosquitos. Fashion savvy? haha
Love the attitude, the scenery, and the adventure-full photos! 🙂
Glad you stopped by!
What a perfect bridge! SO cute! And love your outfit!
-Daisy Nguyen from PS BANANAS fashion blog:
Thank you Daisy!! 🙂
Great pictures. You’re fashionable even when you’re not trying, haha.
On a sidenote, I just nominated you for the Sparkly Award. Info is in my last post. Have a great day!!!
I wouldn’t call it fashionable, but I thank you!
And, thanks so much for the Award! I’ll be over to check it out. Yay!
You are brave…..I don’t know that I could make it across that bridge. I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about it.
Thanks for posting that heartwarming reunion photo too! Great post.
You must have fear of heights? I do, too!
It wasn’t too bad, really, maybe?
Glad you liked the photo. Can’t you just feel how much Mr. Cook loves his dog? It made me cry…
It’s amazing how sometimes there’s great stuff right under our noses! Even though it wasn’t a fashion post you stil looked great…but what’s new?
Thank you! You’re so sweet!
So true! I forget to appreciate the beauty around us. I really do live in God’s country! Mountains, lakes, pastures, barnes, animals….I could go on…
Stumbling across old bridges like that is always a treat. Glad you were able to find it!
It’s a shame that it took us this long to find it! Better late than never, right? We’ll definitely be returning.
Not a fashion post, my foot! You can’t help but be fashionable especially in such gorgeous scenery. Don’t you love finding hidden gems like this? It is a walk I would love to take.
Haha. No, not too fashionable….but the scenery was gorgeous!
The same friend gave us a map with many more places like this that we’ve not heard of.
We’ve just been too busy with kids things….well, no more!
i love those old swinging bridges
looks like a very cool place to have discovered
It’s a perfect place for a nice picnic, throw in a little fishing, and when you get bored – you could take a long walk thru the wooded trail…yes, it’s a very cool place.
Is too a fashion post – you look adorable! That last picture is wonderful – it screams “having the best day!”.
Lol! I was having a blast!!
What a tranquil spot. And the pose on the bridge doesn’t look like you are TOO nervous.
Haha, I was okay as long as I wasn’t moving!! 😀
Nah, the bridge wasn’t too high. It just swayed…A LOT!
I love your fashion posts but it’s neat to see you sharing something else this time. What a beautiful spot!
Why, thank you Elaine! It really is a gorgeous place. Can’t wait to see it when the leaves change!
Beautiful scenery!!! Tobi is adorable!!! Love the pic at the bottom of Greg Cook finding his dog, Coco, inside his destroyed house after a tornado hit it. Very heartwarming! ~Sara
I know!! Tobi is adorable! He’s so photogenic, too!
I thought after a heartbraking photo on my last post, I wanted a heartwarming one today. I love happy endings! 🙂
I want to be there now with Richard!
Oh what beatitude nature is ~ desperately need to get out more too, XO!
PS: Tobi is looking so royal as always and I lurve your cap 😉
Have I told you how much I love your name? 😀
You and Richard need to just take off and go somewhere. I think you guys need a break from work, don’t you?
Come to GA and I’ll take you fishing and camping!
LOL ~ yes my dear, you have, from one Jeannie to another XO!
AND YIPPEE! I’ll put you on raincheck for that camping trip, set!
Tobi is such a trooper! A swaying bridge puts my heart in my throat too. Beautiful place and you make it all that much more adorable (sweet hat, girl).
Oh, Tobi did NOT like the bridge at all! He was moving very slow with his tail tucked in. I think it’s b/c he could see the water below between the boards. The bridge wasn’t too high but it swayed SO much! I thought hubby was doing it to scare me, but he promised it wasn’t him. Hmm….I think it WAS him!
I’m not a hat girl, but you know how it is in the woods….don’t want any critters falling on my head!
Gorgeous spot Jeannie and glad ventured out to enjoy a little of what mother nature has to offer 🙂 Your pup is darling! Enjoy your day!
I know, gotta get out more!
Wow, that looks almost EXACTLY like the river near where I grew up on Vancouver Island–my daughter just sent me a picture from the spot I’m thinking of when she was visiting my parents. Even living just up the road, we used to go visit it for the scenery, it was so beautiful.
It’s amazing that we didn’t know about this place before now….what a shame.
Will be going back for picnics when the leaves start to turn…it’ll be pretty!
Oh, it will be pretty! Hoping you post more pics.
You are always a fashion post!! That is one beautiful place!!!! Am I special or what, a Birthday Wish and on Your Blog for All to See, Thanks You My Friend !!!!!!!!! hug and kiss the Tobs for me.
Yes, you are special!
I hope you had a terrific birthday!!!
Not a fashion post, but the scenery is beautiful and the adventure too. Not a fashion post, but also it shows your style wearing casual clothes.
Yes, the scenery was beautiful even though the bridge was kinda scary!
