Cádiz: Cross Over The Bridge

Sunday, I drove to Cádiz (two hours away) with the Goddess Elena and Mother-of-the-Goddess-Elena to spend the day visiting with good friends of theirs, wandering the city, eating, walking, eating, walking, eating. You'll get to see it all. So much to share!

Meanwhile, here's a view of the bridge we didn't cross because it's not yet finished. The bridge is called La Pepa (also known as "the Second Bridge"). It crosses the Bay of Cádiz from the town of Puerto Real. The "First Bridge" of Cádiz, also known as Carranza Bridge, was built in 1969.

I look forward to crossing Puente La Pepa.

But, as San Geraldo once said, "I'll burn that bridge when I come to it."*

Brother, cross over the bridge...

*For my non-native-English speaking readers (like San Geraldo?), the expressions are:
1.  I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
2.  Don't burn your bridges.

      I've monitored San Geraldo very closely at all bridges ever since.

      More again tomorrow! I have a great time finding songs. Some are even new to me (but not this one... I loved Patti Page).

      It's supposed to be completed this year. It may be safe from burning. I think San Geraldo will be afraid to drive over it.

  6. Didn't the Spanish Armafa sail from Cadiz? What would those sailors think seeing this bridge?

      Just think how much easier it would have been for them all to get to the port. They were forced to take boats across the bay. Now they can drive.

  7. I still say San G and I must be related, lol. At least half of my 'funnies' are entirely accidental.
    Beautiful photos Mitchell, love the colours of sky and sea.

      I always love when Jerry laughs along with me and then asks, "What's it supposed to be?"

  8. That's a very long bridge.
    I'm thinking of Simon and Garfunkle's Bridge Over Troubled Water, though the water looks very calm and peaceful. Still waters run deep, however. Oh no, you got me started. Keep living the good life, Mitchell.

      Of course, the first song that came to mind was "Bridge Over... etc." It took a lot of thinking to come up with something different. And, yes, like you my brain has been on bridge overdrive.
