Bridges Across the Thames
This is Radcote Bridge, which is more than 700 years old and still in daily use.
The wooden humpback type bridges are to prevent cattle from crossing.
Tadpole Bridge is a road bridge across the River Thames in Oxfordshire, England.
The bridge dates from the late 18th century, the earliest reference to it being in 1784. It is built of
stone, and consists of one large arch.
This is a ford, where the riverbed is so shallow that you can walk across.
First of all, happy Fathers Day to any of you poets who are fathers! Enjoy your day.
This week I am featuring photos shared by Jo-hanna. They are pictures of Bridges across the Thames River in England. Her photos were taken close to the source of the Thames before the river becomes very wide. Jo-hanna indicates that some of the bridges are centuries old, not fit for traffic other than riders and walkers. Thank you, Jo-hanna, for sharing your beautiful photos.
Be sure to visit Poets United tomorrow to see what Sherry Blue Sky has planned to share. Will it be a featured poet? A featured blog? Or a featured poem?
Glad to see the turnout for Mid-Week Motif Wednesday continues to be good. We hope to see you this coming week for another challenging prompt by Susan Chast!
And on Friday, remember to see who Rosemary Nissen-Wade features on "I Wish I Had Written This" or "The Living Dead."
I issue an invitation here to those of you who participate in Poetry Pantry. If YOU have special photos that you would like me to feature some week, let me know what kind of photos you have. There are participants here from many different cities, many different countries. I think it is great fun to see different areas featured. I am especially interested in scenic views of your area or an area you have visited. Send inquiries first to firstname.lastname@example.org letting me know what you have. I am interested in city or country views - in your home area or places you have traveled.
Come back a few times on Sunday and Monday to see what's new. Visit some strangers, and they will become new friends! Making new friends and reading new poetry, what more could one want?
If you are on Facebook, look for us there as well. Join our site. It is one more way to stay in touch!
And now...here is the procedure, for those who are new here: Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to a poem in your blog. The link will close Monday at 12:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.
