Turbulent waters below the bridge
It's called the potato-patch by those who enter "the gate" on the outgoing tide...;)Quote:

Progress? Our farms are also disappearing, sold to the highest bidder, and who can blame the farmers.
Goodbye are the amber waves of grain, hello
pre-fab communities. Well here is a bridge in my hometown,
while I still have one.
A suspension bridge in NZ that we needed to cross to start our hike. And yours truely made the mistake of looking down half way across! :eek:
Some shots with my new Sony S-600
I agree, this is no progress, though I didn't really like the grassland that much either (the landscape was a bit boring in my opinion).Quote:

It was called the Bay Bridge when I lived there. I guess if you live in Oakland it's the Oakland bridge. I spent some time at TI and Yuerba Buena Island in the Navy and Coast Guard, so I know the suspension span pretty well. I try to avoid the catelever span as it had a small problem in 1989, and the Emeryville, Alameda, Berkley side is a BFM most of the day. The picture is the suspension span (San Francisco) side, and similar in design to the Golden Gate bridge.Quote:

End of geography lesson...
... and many thanks for the picture.
