The bridge is almost ready

The bridge is almost ready after months of renovation and it has been opened this weekend for walkers, not cars. It was very nice to be able to get to the other side and walk along our "old" round. It was very cold this morning and we saw a family who were skating on the pond close to our house and the river. We also did that when our children were younger but now they do all their skating on artificial ice instead. 

Yes, I was very happy when I walked on the bridge with my hubby today, it was wonderful to get out after a lot of cleaning and fixing in the house this weekend. I would love to have some more hours on Sundays.... But I'll guess that there will soon be Friday again and I will be wondering, where did this week disappear.

I think the pigeons had a freezing chock after weeks with warm temperatures in November. We got just a little snow tonight but I think it will disappear because the temperature has increased.

those cranes are a familiar sight around my city - there seems to be construction everywhere! will that bridge ever carry auto traffic? it doesn't look to be that wide. it looks very cold there but I see no snow. I'm waiting for our first snowfall here, but the weatherman tells me it's going to be a warm week. but the forecast for winter is lots and lots of snow!
the bridge looks very long and I love the photo of you standing there! it's beautiful Ella. happy week to you!

What a great photo of you, Ella! I can imagine how thrilled you are to have your bridge accessible now. One of ours leading into the city is still closed. Could be March before it reopens. Ugh. Enjoy the crisp, cool weather!
