Covered Bridge of Baltimore County

Yesterday morning I took my Mother to the bank, grocery store and drug store.  This is a new adventure for the two of us as she has recently moved into an apartment in a retirement community.  When she moved from her old apartment to this new place, she decided to give up her car. Really glad she decided to do this because I wasn't looking forward having to tell her in a few years that she would have to stop driving.

When I returned home, Lou decided we should grab some lunch before heading up to the shop.  After a lunch of crab cake sandwiches, we took a round about way home.  This route took us over the
Jericho Covered Bridge. 


 



The Jericho Covered Bridge in Harford/Baltimore Counties, Maryland

is  located on Jericho Road on the Harford/Baltimore County Line in Maryland.
This  bridge is 88 feet long and 14.7 feet wide and is
one of six covered bridges in MD








I have to wonder if Larry and Linda are still together

  2. What a beautiful bridge and a part of history that is disappearing all too quickly--I'd like to think that Larry and Linda are still together.

  3. Your mother was very smart to give up driving voluntarily.

    Love the bridge!

  4. Nice old bridge, but don't you think somebody should clear that weight limit sign? ;-)

  5. Wouldn't it be neat if they saw your blog post and let you know whether they were still together? Beautiful old bridge!!! xo Diana
