Monday August 17th: floating bridge

One of the local sights is the floating bridge near Brookstone. We are trying to incorporate some different things to see as we go along, not always sticking with the ‘tourist’ traps. The floating bridge was interesting, more slightly submerged, than floating, to the point where we could actually see fish swimming on top of the bridge! It was possible to walk on either side but the middle section was definitely underwater. It is no longer passable by car, only on foot. There were quite a few kids jumping off it into the river but we decided to return to the campground for our water immersion today.

The weather has been extremely hot the last couple of days and doing anything, other than swimming, takes major effort. We’ve been keeping up with our local Philly news and they’re in the midst of a heatwave so we shouldn’t complain, it’s been high 80’s here and that’s more than enough!
