I have been mostly MIA here on the blog and keeping up with you because I have been needed at Baby Girl’s house.
The Hansome Surveyor has been really sick and was hospitalized where he stayed for 10 days.
He’s home now, but they have a long road ahead of them, but setbacks are the stepping stones to comebacks I believe.
Monday, I had a couple of hours free so Big Baby Boy who flew home to be here for the family team and I took a drive out to Knights Ferry to check out the historic wood covered bridge.
This bridge built in 1863 replaced the original which was built in 1860. The Knights Ferry bridge was built to last and was holding up well by the torrential water and rapids rushing down river in the flood of 1862. A bridge further up the river wasn’t and its ruins wiped out the original Knights Ferry bridge. The water was 35 feet higher than the low mark we see here in my image.
The bridge is 330 ft long and is the longest wood covered bridge west of the Mississippi: it crosses the Stanislaus River and is only open to foot traffic now.
There are relics and ruins from an old mill and a neat church and other old buildings I will talk about and share some images of in a future post.
I made those images on my DSLR and haven’t been home to upload them yet.
The Handsome Surveyor is tired and resting a lot. He’ll need it as he returns to work next week.
I am planning to go home Saturday. He-Man has been holding down the fort while I’ve been here. I miss him and am looking forward to seeing him.
I hope your week has been going well and you have a great weekend!
more to come…
