Town of Summer Place
Land of Wooden Bridges
One More Bridge
I stayed with US-50 back to Ohio and the sky was grey for the whole
distance. On the way, I made a short side trip to visit yet another
I saw a few covered bridges and a bunch of people. This is the last day of
the festival but there are still a whole lot of visitors in Parke County.
A 'burger with fries and fun at "A Summer Place" and a pair of
big 'uns in Kokomo. Ended the day near Crawfordsville in easy range of
those Parke County bridges.
On Wednesday, I got a message from Pat Bremer in Indianapolis asking me if
I was interested in joining his Impala SS club in a visit to "A Summer
Summer Place" is a bit of pure nostalgia near Sharpsville,
Indiana, which, in 2003, was the setting for Pat and Jennifer's wedding.
Of course I was interested but had other commitments. I answered with a
thanks and a no. But plans changed and on Friday I changed that to a yes.
This morning I headed west hoping to dodge the promised spotty showers.
The Covered Bridge
Festival continues in Parke County this weekend and,since I'm halfway
there, I'll likely head there from "A Summer Place".
