August 4, 2018 – Honeymoon Bridge – New Hampshire

Yesterday Shadow, Wilma, and I journeyed to the Honeymoon Bridge in Jackson, New Hampshire.   The Honeymoon Bridge is a wooden bridge that was built in 1876, (while the sidewalk was added at a later date).  It spans the Ellis River.  The Honeymoon Bridge obtained its’ name from the tradition of lovers kissing under the bridge, in hopes of bringing on good luck.

Shadow, Buster, My Mom, and I had visited this Bridge previously, but unfortunately I was not able to locate the photographs from that trip (if I find them at a later date I will edit my blog with those additional photographs.).

Yesterday Shadow, Wilma, and I had a very soggy adventure to the Honeymoon Bridge.  The rainy weather scared away most of the visitors which gave us the opportunity to explore without distractions.  We parked at the nearby gift shop, and walked over to the bridge.  Although I was glad to see the sidewalk on the Bridge, both Shadow and Wilma were a little thrown by the zooming of cars shaking the Bridge.  However, with some encouraging we all made it through.  After traversing the Bridge we posed on the opposite side, and attempted some additional photographs.  Shadow enjoyed some rolling around in the grass, and a quick nap, which always brings a smile to my face.  We enjoyed our visit to the Honeymoon Bridge, even on this dreary, rain filled day (Rating:  3).
