I think one of the main reasons I love the Brookport Bridge so much is that it reminds me a lot of my Dad who passed away on August 6, 2007. He was the first one to let me drive across it and wasn't mad at all when I scrapped it a little with his precious pickup truck, he actually chuckled when I had done it seeing as it was I had huge tears going down my cheeks. We spent a lot of time crossing that bridge going to my cousin's house Ledbetter with me riding in the bed of his truck and looking over the side seeing the water beneath us through the grates. Honestly those were some of the best times of my life and forever that bridge will hold a spot in my heart. It's a bridge filled of great memories for me.
One bridge that is on my bucket list is the Seven Mile Bridge in Key West, Florida. This bridge has stunning views of the ocean and one day I will drive across it. Well, maybe I'll be driven. This bridge looks scary as hell to me. I think it's because it looks wide-open, like you'll drive right in the ocean but it's so gorgeous and the location is pure paradise. Check out the pics below to see for yourself.
Soon the Brookport Bridge will be closing for a few weeks while they work on the bike trail which means I will be forced to drive on the ever-dreaded interstate bridge. No. Just no. Fuck the bike trail, KEEP BIG BLUE OPEN!!!!!!!!!!!! Who's with me?
