Forth Rail Bridge, Scotland
It has been over a year since I posted and I must say that I am a little apprehensive about doing so. Can I remember how to create a post? Will it be any good? Will people like my latest photographs? Should I even try, just in case I am pulled away again by other demands? Having thought about it, I suppose that time in a blog doesn’t really matter, apart from people wondering what has happened to you and if you are still in the land of the living? So, here I am, back again, fit and healthy, still retired and two stone lighter for this venture back into posting! As regards the loss of weight, this is purely through walking! It is the best diet I know of! Penny (my other half) and I, are now both retired, we have moved back home to Scotland, but not to the west coast as we thought, but to the east! We have bought a house 5 miles south of where we lived before we moved south to England 29 years ago, and we are loving it!
I have chosen to publish a few new photographs of the famous Forth Rail Bridge for this ‘returning’ post (I can easily access the bridge from home in 15 minutes), particularly since it could shortly become a World Heritage Site! Hope you like them!
The Forth Rail Bridge is of cantilever design and was completed on 4th March 1880! For my American friends, that is the same year as the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona Territory! Quite an engineering feat at that time!
