: One - I can't believe the Gathering has actually been moved closer to us! It's now not more than 60 miles away, so the head Bubba is actually considering going. He loves this area, and we'll be close enough to spend time in his beloved Blowing Rock! And one more look at the bottom of Lynn Cove Viaduct, I'm sure.
Regarding the Lynn Cove Viaduct, must be the engineering/men thing. I got to look underneath the viaduct also (for my brother's interest, of course) and it was interesting. I don't quite understand the reason for it though. It is my understanding that it was built to withstand earthquakes or something???? That would be because we have so many on the east coast huh? Now this kind of engineering might truly be interesting to the California folks, right Jo?
Oh, and the only thing the kids enjoyed about it, was a great place for a nature call. Might want to tell your husband to tread carefully next visit.
Seriously, it is kind of a neat thing driving on this bridge that hangs out off the side of a mountain. And if you know more about why that was built that way I'd love to know more!
