A slow run-off.


Yesterday Christopher Overing sent me the photo he took two days ago of the dry stone bridge we built at his parents property during the Festival of Stone near Montreal last October . The double arches were cleverly designed to accommodate the huge volume of slow-moving run-off (is that an oxymoron?) typically experienced during spring thaw at this time of year .




Here is how the nearly completed bridge looked the morning after the event - this being the most recent festival that Dry Stone Walling Across Canada held during Thanksgiving back in 2012.

  1. It looks like a different world. Last year when the bridge was built it looked happy waiting for water. Now it looks comfortable waiting for the summer.
    A span for all seasons.

  2. Yes, indeed. The new bridge provides a way to cross the property in spring as well as looking beautiful too.
