Dec 2nd, 2019 : Glass Window Bridge

Bahamas, why is there an s on Bahama making it plural? Since the Bahamas consists of over 700 coral-based islands and cays
I guess plural is appropriate. Eleuthera is one of those islands. Itís about 112 miles(180 km) long and only about 1 mile(1.6 km)
wide along much of itís length. Eleuthera is where the blue-green shallow Caribbean and deep dark blue Atlantic meet and the
best place to see the contrast is the Glass Window Bridge where the land is only 30 ft(9m) wide.



Quote:
For centuries, there was a natural stone bridge connection between north and south Eleuthera. Then in the 1940's, several hurricanes combined to destroy the land bridge and the concrete bridge was built as replacement. For decades, this bridge was kept functional by periodic repairs, but in 1992 and 1999 hurricane caused significant damage to the bridge. After the 1999 Hurricane Floyd, practically nothing of the original Glass Window Bridge remained. Although the bridge was repaired and Queen's Highway re-connected within a few months, the geography of Eleuthera was changed forever. Even after a decade, workers stay busy reinforcing the shoreline in order to re-pave the severely eroded asphalt.


Quote:
One should take great care when visiting the Glass Window Bridge and the surrounding cliff areas. Rogue waves have been known to arrive unexpectedly and wash over the bridge and nearby cliffs. Since there are no immediate reefs along the ocean side to break up these rogue waves as they arrive, the waves can hit with great force and have been known to not only wash people out into the ocean, but vehicles as well.
Weíve been hearing a lot about the rogue waves lately in reports from the high cruise ship traffic plying these waters.



Quote:
Land is undergoing continuous erosion from the force of water that pounds from towering heights. On the left, approaching the bridge from the south, is a blow hole that spews water fantastically high, hinting at the power of the water beneath.
Still don't know why it's is called the Glass Window Bridge?

So Homer spends the winter where it's warm and knocks out some sketches to make the trip a tax deduction.

The drone footage was cool.

What do you mean almost, I think he was gone after the second wave.

The second wave swept him out to sea, but if you open the video and read the comments and do some Google searches you will find that he got rescued and hospitalized but lived.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Dec 3 08:09 AM

He's still a goner because somebody that stupid can't last long.

Well, his name's Homer, so...
