A Bridge Party

This was the view in front of us.
Behind us, the river.

Amigo applauded the band when the ceremony was done.


Then we visited Chuck, hard at work keeping the news of the Bridge Grand Opening on the air.
Doesn't the inside of this truck remind you of the cockpit in the movie Airplane?


And finally, we walked the length of the bridge (before traffic was allowed!) to get us back home. Home, for a warm drink and a snack.

The bridge is open to traffic now; maybe soon I'll drive across the brand new span!

This kind of reminds me of the opening of the Mackinac bridge. I understand that they allow people to walk across it once a year.
