Covered bridges over country waters

This Sunday while Jeremiah caught up on schoolwork, I decided to take a solo road trip to Watson Mill Bridge park. I'd been itching to get away with the nice weather, and for new photogenic subjects.

 The park is home to the longest covered bridge in the state, and one of the oldest, clocking in at 126 years old. The drive to the park was well worth the time, and I meandered on some country roads full of farms, old plantation-style homes, and decaying barns (and I seriously saw a cow walking alongside the road I drove on!). I had so much fun at the park -- the covered bridge goes over a little mini-waterfall, and I had fun driving through the old structure (it creaks so much and it's really dark in there).

I wore one of my other DIY-ed floral wreaths, and it matched perfectly with my floral dress.  I spent some time on the rocks, soaking up the sun and letting my tripod perform new stunts near the falls. I couldn't resist the photo opportunities for all of my accessories with a stunning backdrop like that!

Some more photos of the park are below. How was your weekend?
