Thanks Padi.......

Probably the only thing worth catching there are crabs. There are numerous crab pots hanging off this pier.....



Cheers,
Bruce

I like the picture of the footbridge Bruce. It would have looked even better if there was a person, dog or something walking at the far end.

I agree. It needs a person or dog or something on the pier. I'll have to re-shoot it with a model. Reckon Elle would be available ???

Your pictures are great as always, Bruce; but greater still is the fact that you've started to repost on this forum.

Thanks for that,

Okay, just a question for you blokes from the UK - why do you refer to this as a footbridge? Is a bridge for cars referred to as a carbridge? For trains a trainbridge? Sorry, just something I've always wondered about (or at least since I read this post).

Thanks!

Why do you call a pavement a sidewalk? I've never seen anyone walking on their side.

I think we may have covered this in Padi's recent post on the English language and I do emphasize English.

Well Al I would have thought it was perfectly obvious just by looking at the
bridge structure.So obviously not designed for cars or trains,but for walking
hence a footbridge.All others designed for cars trains etc we call a bridge,
or sometimes for trains a viaduct or if it carries a waterway a aqua duct.

What if you were to traverse a footbridge by walking on your hands? Would it then be called a handbridge

I have much to learn about the UK.

I'll join in on this hijacking...

We call it a sidewalk because it's a walk or path on the side of a road.

To our UK bruddas... why do English people say 'warsh' instead of wash?

Why do they call the TV a 'tele' when I would think a 'tele' could also be a phone?

BTW Bruce, awesome pix!

Thanks mate! btw, there are plenty of Americans that say "warsh" or otherwise add r to words. Just talk to a New Yorker!

Oh..and as far as I can tell, there's a shortened word for almost everything in "British" and they always end in y or ie :)

Sorry John but in my part of the country we say wash not warsh.As for the T.V short for Tele-vision,another great British invention, shorter again Tele, simple isn't it just like the English language.

Don't even mention New Yorkers... that's a different planet altogether where they speak a number of dialects of some bizarre language.

If the wooden structure in the picture, dont span the the both banks of
the water,then yes it would be called a pier, or sometimes a jetty, or a landing jetty.
