Bridge reflection in New Edinburgh.
Blowing up an access street getting into Montreal – Cass & Mike won’t be here for thanksgiving.
Montreal is an architectural treasure trove with the mood & landscape changing by the block.
Beautiful fall weather. Clear skies, no rain, warm days.
Stopped at the Bank Street Bridge for a bit on the way home.
Sunset crossing the Alexandria Bridge.
The Prince of Wales Bridge is a rail bridge across the Ottawa River joining Ottawa to Gatineau. It connected with the Canadian Pacific Railway line just west of Lebreton Flats, and crosses the south channel of the river to Lemieux Island; it then continues across the northern channel into Quebec.
The newly installed iceberg at the National Gallery can be seen to the left, towering over all its neighbours.
One shot bridge replacement.
This rig is run by electric motors with a top speed of about 10 ft./minute.
The carrier is designed to hold over-weight loads – in this case a bridge replacement. The bridge is pre-built then moved into place overnight. This reduces downtime for the roadway. Lots of gawkers on hand for the show.
Additional shots to complete the story:
The mighty Mississippi River.
From the bridge at the town of Blakeney, ON.
The morning view of the harbor from our hotel room.
Day promised lots of rain but by the time we got to Palm Bay, the skies cleared to confirm Florida’s claim to the sunshine state moniker.
Now for a relaxed visit with the brother-in-law & sister-in-law.
