Southward

Probably the main cycle trail on Southern Vancouver Island is the Galloping Goose (named after the rail line it follows through much of its length). It crosses the Gorge (an inland arm of the Harbour) over an old re-purposed train trestle, from the centre of which the above view of the city invites contemplation. That's the Bay Street (or Point Ellice) Bridge in the foreground and (if you've got sharp eyes or click the photo to enlarge it) you can see the Johnson Street Bridge further back. The latter is open to allow some marine traffic to pass.

Very first thing I saw was the Johnson Bridge way back there then figure your vantage point form there.

This will be a historic photo in the next few months. I do hope you have taken some good shots... or will... for the new face of the Johnson Bridge.

I know others will try but you are the best. Capture more of the old blue bridge before it is torn down which will be soon enough. You know such historical opportunities do not come along very often. Especially at our ages! I am a fan.
