Bridges Near The Pond

While hunting for the Photo Hunt on Bridge(s)I realized there are more bridges around here than I thought about, so I want to share with you some "cool" pictures of various small bridges.

The following bridge is the largest, and the most further away from the pond. This is one that goes over a swampy area out to a large lake somewhat back of Baker's and Graceanne's and other neighbor's properties. You may have seen another shot of this one some month's ago in the Photo Hunt for "Road".
Here are some of Baker's bridges. A small creek (or brook) runs across all the properties and eventually out into the big lake. This little stream runs (back of the dam) between the pond and Graceanne's house, curls around and goes between the back of Baker's house and his back pasture. This first one is from his back pasture to the front pasture.
This neat bridge goes from a walk-path from Baker's to his back pasture and barn.
Here is another shot of the bridge. It is so pretty I wanted you to see it also.
This is Graceanne's little bridge across the brook from the pond to her house.
And here is another shot of this one, which shows the water reflections.
Below is a bridge in progress. It crosses a small stream that runs from under the road and BESIDE the pond. These are pieces of a tall steel antenna tower used here before there was satellite. Baker brought them down and got them placed across the stream for AR and ER. It will lead from their place over to the pond.
Baker said to tell you, - This one is waiting for the stimulus package; then bring on the shovels and the wood & nails. Ha ha !
Hope you enjoyed our little tour of bridges.

  7. What a lovely place...

    The iron bridge is unique! At first I thought they were flat so you could drive over them. Then I saw what they were made from....

  9. Wow! Can't believe it's been a long time since I was at the pond last... excellent set of photos you got here! I love the first bridge, but the smaller bridges sure got character... might've been perfect for the Bridge to Terabithia movie. :)

  22. Thanks to all of you for stopping by and for your lovely comments. Sorry if I haven't gotten back to you yet. I am trying to gradually get to everyone but had some issues last week and couldn't be on the PC much.
    I hope to answer each one soon.
    Have a great week and thanks again.

  23. Got your message... Odd that the comments thingie wouldn't open on my other blog(s). Even odder that sometimes I have to do the verification "password" when posing a reply comment on my own blog. Wonders of technology.
