Memorial Day Morning, and A Bridge in Madison County

We fished for catfish on Green Mountian Lake.
It was early,, and quiet.

I love the atmosphere and noise the bridge makes.

See where the fish jumped..

There were Canadian Geese, some on their nests.

We had grain fed catfish for supper this evening.
The best I ever ate.
We will go back...soon, to Green Mountian in Madison County.

Oh, I'd love to stroll up that river and walk the bridge. I love covered bridges and the sounds they make. I think about all the stories they could tell! Happy June!

I would love to take a walk to that bridge! We don´t have that kind of bridges in Finland at all! Amazing and beautiful pictures!!

Have a nice Thursday :)

I just love covered bridges! Growing up on the Illinois/Indiana line, we would often take day or weekend trips to seek out some of these treasures. Green Mountain looks like a lovely place!

Your photos are so serene. My MIL is on her way to Kansas in a couple of weeks and she plans on stopping in Madison County to check out the bridge(s).

What a PEACEFUL place to be ....yes I too am glad the bridges have survived all these years.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. My knee seems to feel a bit better today.
They sure did not have to twist it so much when they were taking those XRays.... did not help my pain levels any that's for sure.

We have friends coming over from Dallas next week-end

Hi Marcie,
I so love when you come by an d leave me notes. =)
Yes, my play area is certainly a work in progress.
and yes, i have a lot going on. too much sometimes. I wonder how/if, I will even get caught up.
But I keep plugging away.

Rain? It's Oregon. We don't have rain. =))
Seriously, Rain is slowing down now that summer is here. only a few sprinkles today.

Hope you will have a great week.
You are one special lady!

What beautiful pictures. I love covered bridges! They have such as special feeling about them. Your blog is wonderful. I too am feeling pulled between primitive and Victorian. Thanks for giving me the inspiration to edit and redo.

What beautiful bridges and scenery -- the catfish isn't so cute, though :). I'm glad it was tasty.
