We Finally Got A Picture Of Thompson Park's Blue Lady!

Jackson, our crew Geneologist, took this picture, up by the front gate at Thompson Park, on Friday night.  We believe this might be the Blue Lady of Thompson Park!  I am not sure why she would make an appearence after all these years of us being there (okay, only three years, but that is still a long time!)  but I think we might have something here.  And what I love best is it is even Blue!  She is the second apparation we have caught there.  We were able to get a picture of the Captain in June of 2009.  Perhaps she missed our adventures there because we have not been there as Ghosting 12 since SEptember.  We were there helping Jaycees with the Hanted Park in October, for the whole month, but not ghost hunting. 

This is the picture we took in 2009 of the Captain.  Taken by Jon!

Awesome Picture Jackson!  Keep up the good work!

We went for a Drive....

While driving around Lisbon, Rogers, Elkton and other south eastern areas of Columbiana County on Saturday, we found some beautiful bridges and other sites of interest. 

The Y Camp Road Bridge was our first stop.  My husband is a garbage guy.  He found it when he started his route out there. I thought it was awesome!  It was built in 1950.  A beautiful bridge in a beautiful setting!  Then we found the giant Robin Hood, which Briana fell in love with!  Me too.  It is on a farm, but I do not know much about it at this time.  We continued to Elkton, where we visited Lock 24 and then the  relocated old Church Hill Road Covered Bridge.  It is the shortest covered bridge still in existence in Ohio.
And finally we stopped and checked out this train trestle, which I found last year at this time when my son bought a van from Mill Rock Auto Salvage.  The bridge is beautiful.  The train tracks are still used, out of Negley, though very little.  I could not resist crawling all over it.  I know little about it at this this time, but I am looking.
We had a great time (Briana, Mike, and I).  I hope to do more of this as the weather gets better.  If you know of any interesting places in our County or the surrounding area to explore, please let me know!
