After a very successful lecture, we went into Newcastle to see the famous Gateshead Millenium bridge. On our walk down to the river, I got Kathy to pose in front of one of the other 7 bridges that spanned the river running through town.
And below is the Gateshead Millenium bridge, located in the background. It’s quite an architectural wonder, the only in the world. There is a walkway, shaped like the arch you see, crossing the water. When ships come through, the arch you see moves to one side pulling the walkway up with the cables until both arches are elevated above the water with 25 meters underneath for ships to sail through.
Another one of the brilliant colors…
