Admirals Bridge

A few days ago I posted a photo of Tillicum Bridge, the fourth bridge to cross the Gorge. Moving upstream westward the next and final bridge is the Admirals Bridge or Admirals Road Bridge. Some time ago I posted a photo taken from this bridge but have not before posted a photo of the bridge itself. has posted a nice 360 degree panorama of this bridge that you can see by clicking HERE. The bridge connects two of Victoria's most significant historical sites, Craigflower Manor and Craigflower School. The school is the white building visible through the trees on the far left of the above photo. Craigflower Manor was directly behind the photographer in the above photo. Both of these sites have been featured extensively on this blog in the past.

A nice leisurely way to experience the Gorge is to launch a kayak from Kinsman Park (from where you took your photo of Tillicum Bridge the other day) and paddle up to Portage Inlet. You'll pass under this bridge on the way.
My wife and I do this often. There are some fabulous homes visible from the water. There are a few out of the way beaches past this bridge which make for great places to have a quick beer and lunch and enjoy the ambiance of a sunny day.
Note: If the tide is against you on the way back, it can be a bit of a pull getting back.

BTW, with reference to yesterday's pic showing the urinal, I laughed at the fact you went out of your way to go inside and take an actual photo of the 'sink'. The things photo-bloggers do in pursuit of their art...
