Upper Harbour

The Bay Street Bridge (center of the photo in the distance) marks the northern end of the Upper Harbour. It crosses the Gorge at Point Ellice where the Point Ellice Bridge used to cross. (Scroll down to see yesterday's post). The southern boundary of the Upper Harbour is the Johnson Street Bridge, visible below. The Johnson Street Bridge is slated for replacement over the next couple of years. The railway span is now permanently in the up position since it is no longer functional. The tables and umbrellas visible in the photo below belong the the Canoe Brewpub.As you can see in both these photos, while autumn is definitely here we are having some beautiful bright sunny days lately.

Nice pics - like most visitors to Victoria I suspect, I only ever walk as far as the bridge and head back south. Maybe next time, in 10 days actually, I'll expand my horizon!

Looks like a busy harbour Ben, lovely reflections in the top picture.

You have a great photoblog Madison - just my cup of tea. When you have the time please check out my site - http://www.comicbookandmoviereviews.com - it would be nice to hear what you think of it.

By the way, the new blogger templates may suit your blog better - as they are designed to photos and stuff.

So they decided to replace rather than restore the Johnson Street Bridge? Will that be a traffic nightmare when it finally closes, or will they leave it open to cars while the new one is built?
