Grand-daughter, her boyfriend and I enjoyed a fun night of music in the park and a Classic Car Show. Grand-daughter brought her ‘85 RX-7 to show off 🙂 and we got to listen to our favorite country music singer too. I love Summer!!
On a recent road trip to Ashland, OR. my daughter and I visited Lithia Park, which is a beautiful 93 acre park in the city. In one part of it was a charming bridge, babbling brook and children’s playground. It was 107 degrees that day! The water near the bridge was shallow and perfect for wading, so off came our shoes and wading we went! Such fun and so refreshing!
It was at that point we noticed the name on the bridge was “Atkinson Memorial Bridge 1912”.
The bridge was built as a memorial to William Atkinson who was a prominent person in the founding of the town.
Surprise! Perhaps he is one of our ancestors! 🙂
