Day 6.227: Bridges old and not so old

At the Old Stone Fort Museum yesterday there was a display about the Old Blenheim Bridge - a mid-19th century covered bridge that used to stand nearby and was destroyed by the flooding caused by Hurricane Irene in August 2011. It is hoped to rebuild it, although it's not clear to me how realistic a hope that is at this time.

As we left the museum, we spotted a covered bridge across the creek right by the museum and stopped to take a look.

The Fox Creek Bridge is not terribly old - having built in 1982 on the foundation of another bridge. Exile #3 - probably thinking that 1982 seemed like pretty ancient history to her - finally acknowledged that it had been built after her parents were born so it wasn't too old.  I suppose we'll have to take that as a kind of compliment.
