Mighty Mississippi River

Our trip to Mississippi
took us over the bridge of the river.
It makes me nervous going over water, but I did okay.
Even shot a few pics through the raindrops
 before my camera stopped working.

Welcome to Good Fences
 and this fence along the roadway on the bridge.

I was glad I got these shots before my camera passed away.

The beams are huge.

After passing here, it poured down raining.

See you next time
with a little home decor.

Oh and I got a new camera
 and we are becoming friends.
So far, so good!



p.s. thank you for all the kind comments on my master bedroom redecorated!

TexWisGirl said...

yay for a new camera! those are good, sturdy trusses!

Andrea Ostapovitch said...

I love doing quick drive by shots with my phone, and then seeing if I have anything worthwhile to work with. Sometimes I get a pleasant surprise. Your drive by shots were worth it for sure.

Tanya Breese said...

Ooh Celeste, I don't like going over water, either...nor high overpasses, twisty mountain get the picture!
I'm glad you're getting the hang of your new camera!
Have a beautiful day, sweet friend! xo

These are the type of bridges that create nightmares for me. Tho, living where I am now, it's become a bit more habitual crossing. LOL

Nancy Chan said...

Huge beams and safe fence. Enjoy your new camera.

Jan Hermann said...

Love those old big bridges - great shots!

Oh, I love bridges, and I would love to be able to drive over the Mississippi.
Have fun with the new camera. Hugs, Valerie

Sue Kosec said...

I don't like bridges over water either. Just like my grandmother. Once she took her teeth out, got down on the floor in the back seat and took her teeth out. YIKKES!!!!!!!!

Happy (dry) travels.

Mrs. W. said...

Hi there!

I love bridges - the longer and higher the better; and I love rain!

Glad to know you got a new camera. I always do not like figuring out new stuff :)

Celestina Marie, Nice Mighty Mississippi bridge pictures. Good luck with your new camera.

Donna said...

Glad you are enjoying your camera, Celestina! Going over a long expanse of a bridge in a car doesn't bother me, but when we've gone over them in a motor home, that's when it gets unnerving to me!!

craftyles said...

So pretty going over the bridge. Glad you and your camera are becoming friends. I'm still getting aquainted with mine. LOL. Have a great weekend, Celeste.

Christine said...

Now that looks like a mighty bridge over the Mississippi! Glad that you could share these pics and hope you and your new camera soon become great friends!

Patty Sumner said...

It is amazing the power of water! The Mississippi is one mighty creation of God and beautiful to see. I am always nervous when I cross over any type of water... Blessings!

Karen@Southern Gal Meets Midwest said...

Great pictures of the bridge! Sorry about your camera but now you can enjoy your new one. Happy Thursday :)

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Hello celeste! I Passed Our Part I On Of the Mississippi last night but the police and emergency crew for the city we there. I think some one fell into the icy waters!

Rose said...

Seeing your photos reminds me how much I love the Mississippi...only been near it/over it a few times. I think the love comes from reading Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn...

Stacey said...

I love the Mississippi River! We were in New Orleans a few months ago and it was so foggy and rainy the whole time we were there that you could stand right on the side and not see the river.

Awe...sorry about your camera but at least you got a new one now to take lovely pictures with. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Ida said...

Those do look like some mighty big beams on that bridge. - Happy to hear you got a new camera.

Daniela said...

What an enchanting river, Celestina, filled with history !

I do understand it, don't worry, I also love to catch images wherever I go, my darling !
Have a blessed end of your week

Oh how I love to travel across the mighty Mississip! Love these photos! Hugs, diane

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

It's a small world since we live near the headwaters of the Mississippi River and have made several journeys on the river with our kayaks. I'm sorry to hear about your camera, but I'm sure a new camera will help you get over it quickly!

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

I really don't like bridges either. So glad that you got a new camera. I really hate it when they won't work right. Drives me crazy LOL
Have a great weekend.
Hugs dear friend.

Blondie's Journal said...

These are great 'moody' pictures. I have to catch up, dear friend, I'm not sure where you are!! I'm a bad blogger lately but I'll get better!

We have something in common...I have a hard time going over bridges that have water below. I use to close my eyes, but now I can keep my eyes open. However...I'm still nervous until we get over the bridge And when we go south to visit family...we have to go over the Ohio River coming and going!!

Row homes and Cobblestones said...

Love your photos of the bridge, sorry about your camera and I'm looking forward to seeing photos from your new camera. Thanks for sharing these photos I've never crossed over the Mississippi River.

Claudia said...

Wonderful pictures, thank you, deear Celeste!
Wishing you a lovely and wonderful weekend, my dear friend!
Sending Love and hugs and blessings,

It's mighty for sure! The first time I went to see Marie we went over a bridge that was very long. It was raining and it was dusk. The rain created a foggy condition that hovered over the water that made it so eerie. Not many things scare me but I almost freaked out! Very funny now but it wasn't at the time. I can still hear Chrissy chuckling the whole time at this cool cucumber losing it! LOL Love & hugs, Edie

WOW! you have a ton of comments. I too am getting cleaning done and packing Christmas away. In Maine the winter has not started yet only one snow at the coast. The coast is warmer in winter and cooler in Summer. Sometimes the
temps vary 20 degrees from the interior. Beautiful post.

Dreaming of Vintage said...

I used to be scared to death to go over water, but the fear is long forgotten. Cool photos Celestina!

Kim said...

I'm not a huge bridge fan either, but this one is lovely...strong!! Pretty photos, too!

Conniecrafter said...

I too have a thing about bridges, especially going over water, we were on one for so long in North Carolina that I couldn't wait to get over and then found out we had to go back over it in the dark to get back, Yikes!
Glad you were able to get some neat pictures before your camera died. Good luck learning your new camera :) and have a wonderful weekend!
