The Bridge is Up

Mystic, CT  2017

It never ceases to amaze me when I see this historic bridge raise to let the boat traffic go up and down the Mystic River.  During the summer months this happens every hour at 40 minutes past the hour.  


  1. That is quite a bridge. You know I had to look it up...

    Not only great info but a live feed! There, I have now been to Mystic, CT.

  2. A bascule bridge, not a drawbridge. I learned something new today, thank you!

    1. Thanks for looking and commenting, Kay. The Mystic River Bridge is a very historic bridge and has been featured in my blog a few times in the past. It recently underwent considerable restoration after being damaged a little during Hurricane Sandy a few years ago. You might guess that I really like the Mystic area.

  3. You know I want to visit it now!
