Gwynns Island Bridge


This is my favorite bridge in the world, and I've been over many.

Well, technically I've not been over many outside this country, other than a few in Spain, but you know what I mean.


The Gwynn's Island bridge has many faces and many moods, most of which are calm and tranquil. Definitely not in any hurry to do anything. Sort of like life around here, plodding along at its own pace, oblivious to what's going on in the real world.

The other night when the CB Children and I went for a little excursion, we spent a lot of time around this bridge. She really likes having her picture taken and, although slow, she is not beyond performing stunts to get your attention.

Below, she was pretending to open for a Coast Guard boat, but I know better.

She really just wanted her picture taken.


I've been trying and trying to get that bridge to frame Callis' Wharf just so, in the evenings to take advantage of the setting sun. Try as I might I just can't get it how I want it.


Guess that means more evening trips to the bridge.

Excellent.

Isn't it funny how some people would say .. oh look a bridge.. or oh look a light house and what we see is a friend that has always been there?

Or maybe I haven't had my coffee yet and I am the only one who thinks this way and I am again letting the world know I am just a bit OFF IN THE HEAD. Not to be confused with OFF WITH HER HEAD.

You take me to photo your bridge and I will take you to photo my lighthouse... deal?

I miss it already and it is only a week. A year is way too long.

I love that bridge too, it has lots of character. There aren't too many non-drawing drawbridges out there...

In my town we have a water tower. Yeah, I don't care either. Can I come photograph your bridge?
