Side Street Sunday (4)

Yesterday I decided to take my Sunday drive a day earlier.  I am glad that I did as the weather here in New Jersey today is a bit dreary and not a great outdoor picture-taking day.

I ventured again into Cherry Hill and went to the Scarborough Covered Bridge. Which is not far from the Barclay Farms that I visited last Sunday for Side Street Sunday (3).

The Scarborough Covered Bridge was built February 14, 1959.

Thanks for visiting and of course all comments are welcome.

Roanoke Island, NC

Today is my last day here in Outer Banks.  Time to pack up and get ready for the 8-10 drive back to NJ with a 1 and 8-year-old (this is fun!).  I hope the traffic is light and we make it back in record time.

Since it is the last day I decided to take a ride and explore other parts of the Island.  I drove out to Roanoke Island.  Roanoke is where the first settlers landed way back in the late 1500’s.  (Click here for some history.) This was formerly part of Virginia.

I went to the William B. Umstead Memorial Bridge and there was some nice scenery just waiting to be photographed.

I like how the roots from this tree twist and intertwine with the next one. I wonder how old this tree was here before it died.

Another view of the tree.
