I cannot tell you how excited I am!
A couple summers ago, Greg and I went out for a bike ride in picturesque Southern Vermont.
One of our favorite photo stops was the Bartonsville Covered Bridge.
Later that summer, when floods from Hurricane Irene devastated much of Vermont,
this beautiful bridge was swept right into the river.
Its demise was caught on a 20 second video that went viral on YouTube
You can watch it here
I remember when this happened, I felt the sadness you can hear in the woman's voice.
So, imagine my excitement when I heard the bridge had been rebuilt.
Last weekend, I had to go see for myself.
Not too shabby!
The view from inside - looking out at the river that swept it away.
It will be many years before the wood takes on the aged patina of the original bridge.
But, while much of Vermont still shows scars from Hurricane Irene,
the Bartonsville Bridge has been rebuilt!!
And while I'm on the topic of excited - I'm pretty excited about Madge's new blog hop:
