Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Salford Quays



The Salford Quays lift bridge or Salford Quays Millenium footbridge.









The bridge has a vertical lift of 18 metres to allow large boats to travel underneath.



 The bridge reflected in an office block.





The bronze Quay West office building

  15. We see a lot of lift bridges and swing bridges in Florida, but I don't think any of them are as handsome as yours (or maybe it's the photographer, do you think?) .... Great reflections as well.
