Then we are at the second letter of the third round of Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday. The meme has now got its own site where you will find both a short version of this entry and many others.
For those who have followed my blog, it might not come as a surprise that I have chosen BRIDGE as the Word of the Day. Wikipedia says it like this:
A bridge is a structure built to span a gorge, valley, road, railroad track, river, body of water, or any other physical obstacle, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle. Designs of bridges will vary depending on the function of the bridge and the nature of the terrain where the bridge is to be constructed.The bridge shown here is "my bridge" (I live near the top of the hill to the right of the bridge). It is better known as "Sotrabroen" (The Sotra bridge). The bridge spans the fjord of "Vatlestraumen" between the municipality of Fjell and the city of Bergen.
Here is another view taken from the top of the mountain Lyderhorn
This sign is placed on the island side of the sound. It states among other things that the bridge was opened in 1971, is 1236 m long and that the maximum height for the ships passing beneath is 50 m.
However, the capacity of the bridge is now too low, and there is at present a discussion going whether one shall build another four-lane bridge close by the present one or make two two-lane tunnels beneath the fjord.
In any case, what is better than showing Norway's largest sailing vessel "Statsraad Lehmkuhl" beneath the bridge?
PS At the same time I will put out a gentle reminder that the coming Monday, August 4, will be the next day for the Bridge-project.
As usual, the rules are here
