I am one of those people can’t just sit around and do nothing. Monday’s thyroid surgery is forcing me to rest, but I’ve found a bazillion projects I can do just by starting up my computer. One of those projects is sorting through old photos that I’ve been meaning to do something with, but just never had the opportunity to do so. I stumbled upon photos from a trip my mom and I took to Ashtabula County while I was visiting her in Ohio. These photos were from almost exactly 4 years ago, August 4, 2005. Finally, it’s time to share them!
Many don’t realize some of the neat things that Ohio has to offer. For instance, Ohio has spectacular covered bridges. Most people think of the Bridges of Madison County, not the Bridges of Ashtabula County. Yet, Ashtabula boasts 17 covered bridges while Madison County, Iowa contains only six. Check these bridges out!
When we were driving past the Olin Bridge I saw a sign “Brant’s Apple Orchard”. I knew what it was and I couldn’t believe I stumbled on it! My best friend from elementary school, Kelly Brant, moved after sixth grade to go live with her family on an apple orchard in Ashtabula. Could I really have found it? So, I went walking through the orchard, and found her parents.
They informed me that Kelly was not living far from here and was working with her fiance at Tarsitano Winery. So to Tarsitano we went!
On this trip I found a bunch more things Ohio has to offer and I also found a long lost friend!
