Photo Hunt - Covered

The word for today's Photo Hunt is covered - so I chose to show one of the covered bridges in our old neighborhood. This one is private and built to go over the stream to provide access for the Fire Dept. in case of emergencies!

The bridge is no longer there - we lost it in the flood of 2004 after we had 3 hurricanes in a row and the Linville River flooded our neighborhood. ( I guess that can be covered in our word for today also - covered in water!) Each hurricane came one week apart and the land and creeks were so oversaturated that the water had no where to go. The bridge was hauled off and never replaced.

Such a lovely bridge and so sad that it was taken away by the flood.

It was a beautiful bridge. And perfect for the theme.

I've been surprised at how many covered bridges I've seen this week and every one a winner. Nice shot and you definitely have this theme COVERED.

Three hurricanes in a row?!? Good grief!

It's a shame the bridge wasn't replaced - it looks stunning and very pretty!

Take care
