Originally, this swing Warren through truss bridge was built in 1905 by American Bridge Company so the Central of Georgia Railway could cross the Oostanaula River in Rome, GA. After the train line was abandoned, it became a rails-to-trails project and is now part of the Heritage Park Trail renamed as the Robert Redden Footbridge.

This pedestrian bridge is now famous for the "Love Locks." To display their undying love, a couple etched their name on a padlock and attached it to the bridge. A few other couples did the same thing and by Valentines Day 2014, the idea had gone viral. Today, the bridge has hundreds of these 'love locks."

I was able to mark one item off my bucket list in 2016 when I was able to finally photograph the iconic yet elusive Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. I'm not sure why this became so important to me, but along the way I acquired a plush version along with a hot wheel of the noteworthy car.

Then, in the spring of 2016 I went to my regular grocery store and there it was! I only had the camera on my phone, but there it was. Then, when I got out of my car, it drove off because it had to visit a dozen more grocery stores that weekend.

I don't they plan their stops too far in advance, but it's tough to find out where they will be. The only way to track it is with their app, which never worked to well for me.

Then, I learned they would be at the 4th of July celebration in downtown Franklin, TN, so I made sure that is how I would spend my holiday. I found it, and it was parked right next to the county courthouse on 3rd Ave. I also got a Wienerwhistle for my son.

Musica is a statue sculpted by local artist Alan LeQuire which was unveiled in 2003. It is located in a traffic roundabout at Music Row. It features nine nude figures dancing in a circle, while the top one holds a tambourine. Each figure is about 15 feet tall and the entire statue is 38 feet.

Upon its unveiling, it was controversial as some people didn't want nude statues in the Bible Belt. It was the scene of a famous prank on St. Patrick's Day 2010 when some locals dressed the statues in Irish garb.

From Wikipedia:
The Kentucky Governor's Mansion is a historic residence in Frankfort, Kentucky. It is located at the East lawn of the Capitol, at the end of Capital Avenue. On February 1, 1972, it was added to the United States National Register of Historic Places. Kentucky Governor, Matt Bevin, and his family currently reside in the mansion.

It was built in 1912-14 to be the governor's mansion, to designs submitted by Weber, Werner & Adkins of Cincinnati, Ohio; besides the Kentuckian architects normally credited with the design, the brothers Chris C. and Edward A. Weber (1875–1929) of Fort Thomas, partners in the firm included G.S. Werner, and J.S. Adkins. The brothers Weber were selected from among four firms invited to submit plans. The new mansion replaced the Old Governor's Mansion, built in 1798, which still stands, at 420 High Street, Frankfort. The Act specified that the new mansion should be "constructed, trimmed and finished with native stone produced from quarries in Kentucky." The Beaux-Arts design owed a great deal to the Petit Trianon at Versailles' interiors were in neoclassical French taste. The landscaping design for the mansion was developed and implemented by William Speed of Louisville.

The Governor's Mansion Preservation Foundation is a charitable trust that is charged with conservation of the historic structure. The Governor's Mansion is regularly open for tours.

From Wikipedia:
Primitive Baptist Church of Sweeten's Cove is a historic Primitive Baptist church in Marion County, Tennessee, located in the Sweeten's Cove area in the Sequatchie Valley, about 7 miles north of South Pittsburg.

Sweeten’s Cove, which is identified as Sweeden’s Cove in some old maps and documents, was an area of early settlement, primarily by members of the Beene (Bean) and Raulston (Roulston) families. The church was established around 1821 as Union Primitive Baptist Church. It adopted its current name in 1834. The church building was completed in 1853.

On June 4, 1862, Sweeten's Cove was the site of a minor battle between Union Army forces under General James Negley and a Confederate cavalry unit led by Colonel John Adams. Twenty unidentified Confederate soldiers who died in the battle are buried in the Bean-Roulston Cemetery, which is about 0.7 miles (1.1 km) north of the church.

The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
