Bridgeport - Part II

We were up, showered and dressed fairly early as we had a full day of exploring to do. There was a rodeo all weekend long so we saw lots of friendly cowboys, friendly cowgirls, cowboy hats, cowboy boots with spurs and of course wrangler blue jeans. Cowboys won't wear anything but wranglers. Levis are for yuppies and such. Just so you know.

We headed to Bear and Lois' ranch in Nevada that was a fair piece from Bridgeport. The eastern sierras is some beautiful country. I've always called it God's country. So far our feelings were being proud to be an American and being in God's country. I'm thinking we had already caught the old fashioned 4th of July fever. Whatever it is it's just fine with us.

The next two photographs are of Bears Model A. He had it all spruced up for the parade on Monday and wanted to take it for a little spin to see if everything was okay. I was asked if I wanted to ride in the rumble seat. Heck yes I do and I did. I never dreamed I'd ride in a Model A, but to ride in the rumble seat of a Model A was awesome.

We spent a wonderful day enjoying each others company while the dogs ran around off the leash. Evening was setting in and it's time to head to Bridgeport Inn for dinner. Their specialty is prime rib and all the years we've visited Bridgeport the prime rib has been excellent. We found out this trip that they have had the same chef for 23 years. No wonder it's always perfect prime rib. For a look at their menu go HERE. Hubby and Brian had the mountain cut which is 18 ounces of prime rib. They ate every bite.

We had a relaxing day and a wonderful dinner. It was time to part company and head back to our motel. We shared some more champagne and then headed to bed. Tomorrow is Americas birthday.


  1. Glad to hear you had a great time! Was the rumble seat comfortable? I've heard they weren't all that nice to ride in.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. You got to ride in a rumble seat? Cool! Not everyone can say that.

    I've always wanted to see a rodeo. Never been to one.

    Prime rib? Now you're making *ME* hungry!

  3. Looking good in the rumble seat, as a ten year old it was very cool to ride back there.

  4. Oh, that mountain lake vista is spectacular! There is nothing quite like the mountains... even though I hate the switchbacks and drop-offs! Totally worth the panic attacks once I get there!

    Big hugs xoxo
