Labor Day Monday Mosaics ~

We took a little road trip last week to the Oregon Coast and Bonneville Hot Springs in Washington. On our way from the coast for breakfast in McMinnville we took Highway 18 and spotted a sign for a covered bridge. The original bridge was built in 1914 but was damaged and was rebuilt. The new rebuilt bridge is on private property that is owned by a military family with a son in service with the Marines. We can relate to that.

We found a great little cafe in McMinnville that bakes their own bread and has homemade jam. We enjoyed a granola crusted french toast and an egg scramble that was really tasty at Wild Wood Cafe. After breakfast I had a little sit and chat with Ben Franklin in the historic section of old town.

I’m linking up with the fabulous photographer Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday, I guess it will be a special Labor Day Mosaic Monday.

I hope you all are enjoying your long weekend and you’ve fit in some time free from labor!!

  1. thank you for the images of the covered bridge. They are the most fascinating thing – I guess I have been in love with them ever since “The Bridges of Madison County”. We don’t have them here, so thanks for sharing! and have a wonderful week.

  2. I love covered bridges. Recently we watched on the news to see that a flood caused by Hurricane Irene took out a historic covered bridge. My mouth just dropped as I saw history washed away in a blink. V

  3. You and Ben look like you got along famously! Thanks for sharing these shots of your great weekend away. Those covered bridges are such beautiful constructions, and I do rather like the look of that breakfast.

  4. Old Ben looks quite pleased to have your hand on his lap. I love covered bridges. Can you imagine the stories they could tell. That french toast looks so yummy! One of my breakfast favorites!

  5. Is the bridge open to viewing by the general public, though it is on private property? Covered bridges are not a typical sight here in Alberta, so I love to see them when I can. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful remainder of the long weekend!

  6. I’d say by the smile on your face you and Ben had a lovely conversation and by the smile on his face, I think it’s safe to say that you didn’t fill him in on our current political situations…LOL!!! Oh Ellen B, you’re just so much fun!!!!!!

    Happy Labor Day

  7. Okay, I will have to go this route next time…way tooooooo cute of a town!!!! Sheesh, I need to have you go to places before I go to them so that I get to see all the cool things! Your D.C. tour totally helped and now this….where are you off to next?

  8. How nice to see your pretty face! Did you have a nice chat with Ben? 😉

    And what a beautiful bridge… it’s reminding me of all the historic bridges that were lost recently in Vermont. Thanks for sharing your talents at MM. 🙂
