It rained a hard steady rain all night.
There are breaks in the clouds this morning. We grabbed jackets and headed out for a covered bridge tour. Ashtabula County is known for its many covered bridges. Currently the most (18) of any county in Ohio. Two of the bridges have records of being the longest and shortest in the United States. The longest is 613 feet and is the fourth longest in the world.
We managed to visit 7 in a day of driving. We stopped for lunch at a little diner that sold turkey sandwiches.
We also visited Ashtabula Harbor. In its booming years it was considered the third roughest port in the world, behind Shang-Hi and Calcutta. Ken grew up here and knew the history of the area. He has a lot of childhood memories to share with us.
