OOPS! I didn't mean to take your local bridge. :) It was in my files because we crossed it a couple of weeks ago.

The lilacs are lovely in the foreground of the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge.

I've always like bridges, ever since I was a kid and we crossed them over the canals in Utrecht. The bigger the bridge now, the better, but I like quaint little bridges too. This one is very nice and sturdy. Love the lilac bush.

Kaori: yes, I climbed a big hill, in the wind to get this view!

EGWow: that's okay - it's actually a little exciting to se something you immediately recognize! that bridge has been, and will be, on here many times!

Luna Miranda: thanks. I think the bridge blends in with the scenery.

Rob: it is a little too long for my comfort.

BSquared: you must come up this way next May, then!

Nora: I am quite fascinated with bridges - though not fond of driving over long ones such as this one!
