Today for Alice’s Bridging the Gap photo challenge I’m going into my archives and “across the pond” to show you a couple fun bridge memories from England.
In April of 2004 we took our daughter to Great Britain to follow the haunts of her favorite writers. This bridge over the River Wye is in the town of Bakewell close to Pemberly Chatsworth House, where parts of the new Pride and Prejudice movie were filmed.
Bakewell claims that Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice was written while she stayed at the Rutland Arms, although others claim that it was written while Jane Austen stayed at Haddon Hall. No matter where Jane Austen stayed, everyone agrees that Pride and Prejudice is based on the surrounding area with Lambton being the portrayal of Bakewell and Chatsworth House being the model for Pemberley.
This foot bridge is on the grounds of Blenheim Palace. That’s Katie and Dear on the bridge. In 2004 I knew nothing about bloggers or blogging. I so want to go back to Great Britain now that I blog. I think my photos would look a lot different from the perspective of a blogger! :0)
For more Bridging the Gap photos visit Alice at Iwasborn2crea8. This is a week long photo challenge but it is being considered for a one day a week challenge in the future. Consider joining in and showing us your bridges…
Photobucket is holding all my photos that I posted on my blog from 2007-2015 hostage and replaced them with big black and grey boxes with threats. So discouraging…as I’m slowly trying to clean up thousands of posts!
