Well, when it's home of course! And that was the focal point of our ride today, to see the covered bridge home. Starting out on 114 and heading toward Henniker so we can pick up 127 north we ventured along. On the way we ran into one of Lindas co-workers walking down a back road, Elaine who told us we needed to take a ride by her house which netted us a beautiful horse farm

Of course comparisons are important, so before we got to the covered bridge house we needed to revisit a real covered bridge. This is the Rowe bridge where we glided through with Chris ( 35Chief ) last year

We ran into a detour because of a bridge closure whichbrought us to 103 where we found this delapitated barn structure

Finally we were able to pick up the section of 127 we needed and after a short eight miles we hooked up with White Plains road which leads to Bridge House road, the home of the covered bridge house.
Now you need to understand that this is a genuine covered bridge, it used to span the Blackwater river in Webster NH

It is owned by Jon Pearson . It was purchased by Jons great aunt Jessie and it's orignial usage after being disassembled, moved to her property and reassembled was a summer guesthouse. Jons dad inherited it and subsequently sold it. Jon apparently had enough passion about it that he finally was able to buy it back.

Jon was not there, or at least not availabe but his girlfriend Tara was and she was most gracious, allowing us on the property and showing us her animals including a Guiness record contending ( for height ) work horse

Yes he was tall indeed, but I liked this fellow

A ride into Warner graced us with the simple beauty of small New England town Americana

And we had to visit the Waterloo covered bridge again

Like many of the places we stop this area too is seeped in NH history

The day was capped with a pleasent meal at Cactus Jacks, and today being the 25th and the fact that Cactus Jacks is celebrating it's 25th anniversary ( we didn't know ) that meant free chocolate cake on t25th of each month! Yummy!!

CD is showing the rest of us just how neat NH can be. I think Anne & I have ridden and/or driven to many of these places (check out the covered bridge across the Connecticut River in Bath, NH) and really appreciate the posts. Thanks
