Some Shots from our Evening Walk Around Jackson

There are two covered bridges in Jackson. On top is the small covered bridge that arcs over the Ellis River in the middle of the Wentworth Golf Club. Below is the Jackson Covered Bridge that leads to Jackson Village.
We live just off the Jackson Loop and only a quarter of a mile from the Wentworth Golf Club. It's particularly pretty in the early morning and just before sun goes down when the light is at its softest.
The Wentworth Inn is a throwback to the days of old when grand hotels were really grand. This is a front and side shot of the main building. There are also several satellite structures.

Across the street from the Wentworth Inn is the Jackson Public Library. It's part of the historic district. Soon it will be replaced by a newer, bigger, more functional structure about a half mile up the road. Not sure what will happen to this building, but I'm sure it will be taken care of since it is in the historic district. The library is so small it doesn't even have a bathroom. Atticus and I have been invited to speak there as guests. Actually, I'll be doing the speaking, while the crowd simply looks at Atticus.

This is the Inn at Jackson. The long sloping lawn and the Adirondack chairs makes me wish I was a guest there and not living less than a mile away.

This is the Ravenwood Curio Shoppe. It's definitely a neat place and was lovingly built by the owner, who lives right next door.
On the other end of the Jackson Loop you get a close-up of the small covered bridge on the gold course.
