A Peek at Zanesville before School Starts!
We had a short drive yesterday from Delaware State Park in Delaware, Ohio to Wolfies Campground in Zanesville, Ohio. This campground is the location of the NRVIA Learn by Doing class that Russ is taking this week. Since the class starts on Wednesday, we decided to do a little bit of site-seeing today in the Zanesville area. We were told to make sure and see the Y-Bridge which is a historic three-way bridge that spans where the Licking and Muskingum Rivers come together in downtown Zanesville, Ohio. The Y-Bridge is shaped like a…what for it…. Y - creative name, huh? Residents of the area like giving directions to visitors that are surprised when they are told to “Drive the MIDDLE of the bridge and turn left.” Not something you here everyday! After reading about it a bit today, it was first constructed in 1814 and has been rebuilt 4 more times. We made sure to drive it in all three directions before viewing it from the Putnam Park Overlook that gave us a great perspective of the entire bridge.
On the way to the Putnam Park Overlook we found this super-long slide that I couldn’t resist. When I was a kid….no wait, I still do that! After all, Walt Disney said “That’s the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up.” So I see no real reason to act my age!
After some errands around town and some chores at home (see I can play adult when I need too), we headed out to enjoy the crisp cool afternoon. There is a bike trail only a mile or two from the campground, so we were able to jump on our bikes for a ride along the Muskingum River. We rode on Zane’s Landing Trail from what we believe was the very start to the very end. It was built along the old railway, with the new railway on one side and the Muskingum River on the other. Reason #5792 why I love our full-time RV life - bike rides on a weekday afternoon. They are my very favorite!
Next up for the day - haircuts! We picked up a pair of hair cutting scissors a few weeks ago with the intent of Russ starting to cut my hair. It was time to put those scissors to good use. Russ was up for the challenge to give me a trim (or 4”). His version of shoulder-length and my version might be slightly different, but it will keep me from needing another cut for awhile. I think he may have just trying to save himself some work. Anyone that knows me, knows I have my hair pulled back 24/7, so I’m not too picky so there was very little risk. Messy hair, don’t care! It was super close to being too short to pull back and that would have been fight-worthy. Thanks for the trim honey- you know how much I hate spending money on a haircut. Problem solved.
