Last night while driving over to my cousin's house I saw the Bass Mansion all lit up. It is a beautiful place in the daytime, but at night it is a vision.
The pond was surrounded with milk jugs filled with light. Exactly how, I have no idea, but the effect is stunning, and from the road you cannot tell what the lights are. While visiting with my cousin I asked my aunt if she would like to go and see the covered bridge in Spencerville the next day. So, today we decided to go on an adventure.
Somehow, we ended up on the wrong road and went to another city. While trying to navigate with the GPS we drove past a white bridge. I saw the reflection in the water that was so lovely. I turned the car around. I'm not sure if we were on private property or not but I drove up as close as I could leaving tire tracks in the grass.
We eventually made it to the Spencerville bridge that was built in 1873. A year or so ago a semi truck drive got lost and drove across the bridge causing severe damage to the structure.
This is a view from the side of the bridge and below is a shot from inside looking out at the water. The reflection of the sky illuminated the water giving it a blue cast, it was absolutely beautiful.
