Outdoor Wednesday, and Rednesday

This is the place we stayed last week,
for one night,
for our little get out of town outing.
It is only 60 miles from home,
but a getaway none the less.

The gate entrance.

The old covered bridge right across the street.
(it is red, but does not show up well)

The river.
In the evening and morning we walked
a bit on the trail next to it.
Gorgeous day.

Old train trestle.

View of the river from the covered bridge.
(and my sweet fella) =)

Our wonderful host, and Inn owner, Ken.
(this is a great Bed and Breakfast if you are ever in the area.)
My fella who made the reservations.
a sweet surprise.
Me enjoying fresh tropical fruit.
See that bright red strawberry??

Thanks for joining us on Outdoor Wedensday
and Rednesday.
Please go visit out host blogs.

It's so nice to get away, and it really doesn't have to be far away to enjoy it! I love covered bridges and old trestle bridges like that. It looks like you had a marvelous time!
Happy REDnesday!

Oh Barbara,
This is such a gorgeous post...and I love the flag and the pics of you and your husband--so adorable!!!
I feel like I went on an excursion and didn't even have to leave the house!

I hope your back will be better quick.
