Long White Bridge

Update 5: Long White Bridge, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens

I ended my last Long White Bridge update with:

Foot traffic was still not allowed on the bridge. I expect the sides will have a railing along the top and there will be caps on the posts, both in black.

Thursday this week was a sunny day and I went back to check on progress. The holiday decorations have been removed, the caps are in place, no black painting has been done, and visitors are still blocked from crossing the bridge.

I pretty quickly got distracted by a Great Blue Heron posing on the new railing.

A few minutes later a Little Blue Heron decided to check out the new view, too.

Surprisingly the Little Blue flew even closer to the GBH.

Even more surprisingly the LBH  struck the same pose as the GBH, who never moved.

    1. Thanks, Jane! I’m so glad they have been able to restore it, and am now wondering if the black railing and post caps were the original color or if they were white. I’ve seen some old photos where it appears white, but don’t know the timeline. Time will tell as we move towards spring and hopefully the azaleas will cooperate!
