Monday was the day to deliver the coach to Bradd and Hall for the Maple flooring installation....:) :) Can't wait for that to be finished!! They need it for the next three days, so about 3 1/2 hours Southeast, on the Illinois border is Parke County, Covered Bridge Capital of the World, and from October 10 thru 19th is the Covered Bridge Festival. It was the perfect time to spend a few days "vacationing" in this quintessential mid-west area.
The weather being sunny with bright blue skies and 73 degrees was perfect for moseying around, taking autumn photos of these lovely old structures. Arriving at the festival center in the Town of Rockville around 3:30 pm, we got (literally) the last room in town, at the Owl Nest Inn....Toolie, the endearing proprietor, offered us a room in her daughter's house next door (she rents out two bedrooms adjacent to the B&B during the Festival). Thrilled with this offering, we gladly accepted! Toolie and her daughter, Starr, saved the day!
Then it was time to sample the many goodies offered at the Festival grounds in Rockville. Everything smelled so good....grilling sausages, spiced apples, smoking chickens and pork tenderloins, and corn fritters for starters. Uh Oh...cholesterol city again! After sampling a few delicious things, it was off to see Covered Bridges!
Makes it easier to forget the country's troubles with the simple life here :).
Hugs to everyone!
