The MacArthur Bridge is a bridge that spans the Detroit River between Detroit, Michigan and Belle Isle. The bridge, which features nineteen total arches across 2,193 feet (668 m), provides main access to Belle Isle. Completed in 1923 for $2.635 million USD, it replaced an iron bridge with wooden decking that accidentally caught fire and was destroyed in 1915. The bridge, popularly known as the Belle Isle Bridge, was originally named the George Washington Bridge and later renamed the Douglas MacArthur Bridge after General Douglas MacArthur in 1942. It was restored in 1986 at a cost of $11.5 million.

Day 127: Kobe for the 3 points! I nearly had to knock a robot out for pulling Lily’s hair. We navigated our way shortly down the coastline from Osaka to Kobe in the morning. After dropping our bags off we scouted out some criminally expensive Kobe beef for lunch. At £27 for half a steak We were sceptical that anything could taste that good at £4 per slither. We were immediately proven wrong as it made the Sirloin steak taste like a piece of stewing steak. It literally melted in the mouth. After lunch we meandered up towards Nunobiki waterfall. Upon taking the wrong route we stumbled upon some great views of the city, which was a bonus. We then headed over to meet Gigantor the giant 18 metre robot. We had some fun pictures with him before jumping back on the train to the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge. We really got use out of our JR passes today jumping on and off along the coast line for free. Lily wasn’t sure she was bothered about the worlds longest suspension bridge but as a civil engineer I insisted we visit what is essentially porn to me. After a few jumping shots we headed back to check into our “love” hotel. The last photo depicts a variety of special rooms with features such as a slide, a climbing wall, pool table etc. Lily wouldn’t let us upgrade so we settled into our strange economy room without a slide. 😔. Turned out to be great value for money, breakfast delivered to your room, free pool and darts on level 2 and a jacuzzi bath, huge bed and all for less than a normal room. Got to love Japan and there quirkiness. #nofilters#kobeforthethree#kobebeef#meltinthemouth#gigantor#robotfight#bitchjustpulledmyhair#waterfoolingaround#dontgochasingwaterfalls#viewsfordays#bridges#civilsporn#lovehotel#noslide#embracejapan#kobe#traveljapan#kobejapan
With mast’s 110 ft above the water, navigating under bridges during a race can be tricky. As seen here under the historic Mt Hope Bridge in Bristol R.I. during the Herreshoff Classic Yacht Regatta. This was an amazing regatta and the second year for our guests @planetfitness

Великобритания, Лондон – Небоскреб «Осколок стекла» и мосты Лондона / Great Britain, London - The Shard, London Bridge, Tower Bridge
Снимок сделан в 2010 году с моста Тысячелетие (Millennium Bridge). На участке Темзы, который составляет около 1,8 километров, построено 5 мостов – Милленниум, Саутварк (Southwark Bridge), железнодорожный мост, мост Ландон (London Bridge) и наконец, одна из самых известных достопримечательностей Лондона – Тауэрский мост (Tower Bridge) – среднее расстояние между мостами составляет 400 метров. А сколько мостов в Вашем городе?
В правой части кадра виден небоскреб «Осколок стекла» чья высота составляет почти 310 метров (со шпилем), в здании 87 этажей, его строительство было завершено в 2012 году. Здание спроектировано знаменитым итальянским архитектором Ренцо Пиано, работавшим над парижским «Центром Помпиду» и лионским «Интернациональным городом».

The Tower Bridge taken last night in early Feb, 2019 at the pier on Saint Katherine’s at the base of the Tower Hotel. Although I usually get a great view from a room at this hotel, I did not stay there this time. So the view angle is from the pier. You can also see the bright tip of the infamous Shard building behind the right pillar of the Tower Bridge. Always a beautiful sight to see at night, which is why I always come to see it when I’m in London every year.
