We went bobbing in Omaha last week. The Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge is named Bob for short and bobbing is when you are on this bridge. Omaha tourist information seems to have a good sense of fun.
Mom checked out what there would be for us to see and do in Omaha. For Olivia and me, it is our first time visiting Nebraska, so we are adding a new state to our list of states visited. This bridge popped up all over the place, so we decided it was a place we needed to see when we got to our destination.
The bridge crossing the Missouri River is three thousand feet long, fifteen feet wide, and held up by two, two hundred ten foot tall towers and lots of cables. To make it more fun it calls itself Bob.
Mom was surprised because Olivia and I were not at all afraid to be on the bridge. It is about sixty feet high and it was a windy day but we went right to the edges without any hesitation. The view is pretty nice from up on the bridge.
We visited the bridge on a Thursday and there were hardly any people around. It actually makes for better photos that way.
The main reason we wanted to go to this bridge is that it is actually in two states, Nebraska and Iowa. There is a line on the bridge showing the state lines.
We took this photo of us each in a different state for fun. It is fun because it is on this bridge and it is what they call bobbing in Omaha.
On the way back off the bridge, we saw this mural in the city. We don’t know what it is about and we could not get close to it because of train tracks and fences but we find it interesting nevertheless.
