ScooterBob Goes to Florence

Yesterday Troubadour and I took ScooterBob on a little journey to Florence.  Not Florence, Italy, but Florence, Oregon.

Along the way we stopped at the Wildcat Creek Covered Bridge, originally built in 1925.

(Had to move him to a post for a better shot)

(Oh look, you can see the railroad bridge too)

(Posing for pictures is hard work, he rested in the cool grass)


Once in Florence we made our way to the Siuslaw River Coffee Roasters.  Iced lattes were consumed outside under the shade of an umbrella while ScooterBob kept us company and observed the historic bridge which opened in 1936.

(And one last shot in black and white just for visual interest)

Too soon we needed to head home.  ScooterBob was tucked in his case and stowed in my tail bag for a safe journey to our house where he awaits his next outing.

  1. Very nice photos! And another covered bridge knocked off the list. (Is there a list somewhere?)

    1. Thanks Richard. We'd actually been to the covered bridge before, almost exactly a year ago but I was on the Gladius doing the gravel roads. Not as fun. Brad has a list of covered bridges on a separate tab on his blog and all the pics are on there. I think there are about 50 of them and we have about half so far.

    1. Bob always seemed sad when he would ride though our area and miss the covered bridges so we thought he'd like this.

    1. Thanks you Sonja. We are trying to let him roam, when our work schedules allow.
