Concord Covered Bridge

There are definitely pros and cons to being the first born. You get your parents’ full attention, but let’s be honest, those parents have no clue what they are doing. So who can say whether that is really a pro or a con. Along those lines, since I’m not pulled in multiple directions with other kids, there are things that I do with Elia that I know that I won’t be able to do with future children. For example, when she falls asleep in the car, I’ll just drive around for a bit, if time permits, to allow her to get a decent nap in. And that is how I discovered, or actually re-discovered, the Concord Covered Bridge area in Smyrna.

Concord Covered Bridge

Less than 5 miles from our house is one of the 15 historic covered bridges in Georgia. And one of the few that’s a working bridge. Built in 1872, only one car can pass through at a time, though thankfully it’s been reinforced a bit. The area is dotted with ponds and creek crossings, and at this part of year, it’s absolutely stunning with the autumn colors.

About once a year, we’ve headed up to the North Georgia mountains, and about once a year I’m newly shocked and appreciative that such natural beauty exists just a few hours from Atlanta. But this? This is right down the street.
