Tomorrow one of our oldest friends will come for a visit and bring our benchmark pizza, Bocce's. It will be wonderful to see her again, fingers crossed that the rain will hold off long enough for us to sit outside and have second cup with her. Later in the afternoon we'll settle the dogs and drive into the Buffalo area for a family wedding.
Here are the rest of the Chautauqua Institution pictures.
Kids called the bridge "thunder bridge" because its wooden deck made such a thunderous sound as they road their bikes over it.
The caveat when it was rebuilt - it must make the same sound as the old bridge.
How great is that!
