The Bridge of my Childhood

When you cross over the bridge of my childhood...also known as Lake Taneycomo Bridge you enter a world unlike any other. 

It has houses that defy common sense...

The Titanic shouldn't be on the corner of Gretna and Highway 76...

Planes have landed on waterfalls... 

Ivy skulls invite kids to come play mini golf,

and a 100 foot chicken invites you in... for fried chicken nonetheless!

Or you can go back through the bridge of my childhood and this time it takes you back to a time I am familiar with.

I remember catching big stringers of crappie in the springtime of the year. 

In every nook and cranny there were old coolers that kept our pop cold and kerosene lamps that lit our campsites. Orange life vests were stowed under the seats of Daddy's old fiberglass boat, waiting for our weekend fishing trips.

That lake has given countless memories to countless families through the years. Long Creek, Blue Eye, Shell Knob we fished each cove, caught our limit and took them home.

Branson, Missouri is a unique place that has something for everyone!


  1. Wow, we sure do have a parallel life! My cherished rememberances are the same= Wish I could revisit some of those old times♥
    Beautiful post! K

  2. I never thought about how it would be for a child to grow up in that environment these days. Any other city would seem boring I suppose. You have such a beautiful view in the fall across the bridge. We love going to the bridge to take pictures every fall, but from what it sounds like, the colors just won't be there this year :(

  3. I'm lovin' your old memories girl!

    We live about 90mi. from Branson and don't get there near enough.

    Looks like ya'll had the time of your life!

    God bless ya and have a marvelous day sweetie!!! :o)

  4. I have never been there but want to go!

  5. I would love to visit Branson...and the other side of the bridge..very dramatic people must live there I think! LOL

  6. Oh, my gosh... these photos are fantastic!!!

  7. Love this! Love the transition you made. That was so cool. Great photos!

  8. Branson has sure changed over the years. When I was little, we would pass through Branson on our way to my Grandparents. Lake Taneycomo was where we fished a big part of the time since it was close to my hometown of Springfield, Missouri. The Bass Pro Shop that they have now at Branson had huge blown up pics of the area long ago, it sure tweaked at my heartstrings!
