Bridges of Washington County

On a hot day in August, I took Eamon (my youngest) and Sidda (our dog) on an adventure driving around to view the stone bridges of Washington County, Maryland. It was a blast.

These stone bridges of Washington County, Maryland are a wonder of early 18th century American genius. The politicians in those years wanted the farmers and merchants to be satisifed with wooden bridges...which often collapsed from a heavy load or from flooding. So...those early American's voted the crooked politicians out of office and voted in honest ones who set about to build these strong, solid stone arch bridges. Hmmm...maybe we can learn from our early American ancestors and immitate their success in the 2010 election.
