What an awesome morning it was. The overcast skies were gone and the sun was bright and warming. Wheeling West Virginia is absolutely delightful. Take it from someone who rides a seriously underpowered trail bike, the 25 mph speed limits are a joy. I rode just a couple miles south to Benfield where I had spied an old, no longer used bridge across the river when I drove into town. Found it. Pictures will have to wait until I get home and refview them on a decent screen.
Meanwhile, here are several from todays explorations. I’ll have more once this Roadtour has ended and I find time to sort through them.
The diverse architecture here is a marvelous sight. Every Block brings new and different styles. I can’t put my finger on it but for some reason Boy George came to mind when I saw this. Not exactly Ybor city but still….. A lot of cigar business has been conducted here.Wheeling is the home of Swisher tobacco. Their advertisement is painted on numerous buildings. thanks to the Federal Government, the signs are disappearing and cannot be repainted or replaced.
