So, after we enjoyed some lunch at the Monarch's Restaurant we decided to continue on. Dad had read about the Bridge of Flowers and thought it might be fun to visit.
As we drove along we passed Old Deerfield, which I made a note to visit on another journey. Old Deerfield looked like a colonial era with lots of the original buildings that were once there. I'll be back to check it out sometime for sure.
So we continued on until we reached Shelburne Falls which is only about 20 minutes north of Magic Wings (from the previous blog post).
This was a small town build around the falls. It looked like more of a industrial type town. So we walked around a little.
These mosaics were all over the town so I took a few photos.
I was curious to see the falls so I headed in that direction. We were told that depending on the time of the day we would either see the falls or the potholes. These are potholes that were made by glaciers centuries ago.
As you can see the water was being redirected at this time to showcase the potholes.
In this photo you can see the bridge on the right side. If you walk down main st. that is where you end up. When you cross the bridge you arrive in a new town.
Behind that bridge you just saw there is a smaller stone bridge which is the Bridge of Flowers. This is taken from the opposite side.
So we then headed back to walk along the bridge. As expected there were a lot of flowers there to see. How neat that you could walk from one town to the other via this garden walkway.
This was a neat little town with a ton of history behind it. I enjoyed walking around and seeing the bridge of flowers. I'll have to make another trip out there as there are other nearby sites to see as well. Fun times!
