Bear River Estuary and Bridges

Daily Image - 22 November 2011 - Bear River Estuary and Bridges

This is one of my favourite views around the Annapolis Basin. Unfortunately it only shows itself from late fall to early spring, when the leaves are off the trees, unblocking the view. Although infinitely superior for daily use, the new highway bridge doesn’t have the same nostalgic visual appeal of the old one-lane, iron swing bridge it replaced. I have many fond memories of crossing that old bridge… especially in the fog.

    Hi Gerry!

    I know where you took that picture from the time we lived in Bear River. To the right is a cape cod home (in the distance), There used to be a fantastic location up behind the house and to the right. It might be grown up now. When I lived there the house was vacant and you could go up and take pictures without worrying that the owner would use his shotgun. I think some one is living in the house now.
