in the shelter of the covered bridge – love stories

Moores Mills Covered Bridge (Trout Creek #5) – one of New Brunswick’s 60 existing ‘kissing bridges’


A covered bridge is also known as a ‘kissing bridge’ – a place where a couple can steal a caress in privacy.  A covered bridge has always been a good place to leave a message about affection for one another.


During our covered bridge visits over the weekend, we saw lots of examples of these messages …


At least two notations of love in the MacFarlane Covered Bridge (Ward’s Creek #2) …



Ron and Trish, 2014 and WR and EE, years ago … MacFarlane Bridge 2015


And another way of linking two sets of initials in the Marven Bridge (Belleisle Creek #2) …

‘Just Married’ in chalk in the Moores Mills Bridge (Trout Creek #5) …

And, back in the MacFarlane Bridge, an incomplete notation.  Who did LANA love?

    • Hi. Yes, these bridges and their carvings are great places for mystery. Perhaps someone local remembers these people. Thanks Robin. Jane
