Covered bridges have always fascinated me.  They appeal because they are from a bye-gone era.    They speak of a time when the pace was  slower.  They serve to remind us the way one used to travel.     
There are several to be found in Columbiana County which is not far from our home.   Dick and I took the bike and visited them a couple of summers ago.   The shortest one is just out of Lisbon, Ohio.  If you want to go further...  Ashtabula has quite a few.   In fact in October they have a festival that sponsors a tour.  The state's longest covered bridge can be found there. 

The painting above was taken from a photo at Beaver Creek that I had posted on a previous blog. 
Chris at Chris Murray Art  suggested that it would make a great subject to paint.   Thanks Chris for giving me the thought.

As I  reflect on these lovely old structures from the past I am grateful they still stand.   They remain a wonderful symbol of the history of a different time and pace.

Hope you have a great week - God Bless!
