Bridge visits

While travelling from the Canadian Dry Stone Wall Festival in Montreal two weeks ago (where wallers from all over built a 35 foot double-arched bridge) Gavin, Norman, Christopher and I dropped in on two other dry stone bridges on the way back to Port Hope. I was delighted to see that this one, Monarch Bridge, in Alderville, Ontario, which Danny Woodward and I built, last August, had very recently been landscaped. The grass was starting to grow and water now collects in a pool directly under the arch and gives the whole bridge setting a very tranquil appearance.
