I get the picture LGM :))) and what fun it must be to see it in action ~ I do not recall ever seeing such a bridge ~ but then I've never seen a Mermaid in the flesh either or should I say scales or maybe flales ~ yours in confusion xxx

When in Bruges try to find something that no-one else looks at - difficult enough dear Nick. We walked across this bridge, and I couldn't work out how taller ships got from a city canal into to the main Ostend canal and vice versa, but of course 'Mr.Smarty Pants' had worked it out. We didn't think we'd see it in action ... :)))

I was in the middle of the bridge when the guy who controls it walked past me in the opposite direction. When I got to the end the gate was shut! Luckily, being a smooth and silky mermaid, I was able to squeeze through a small gap, otherwise I would have been hoisted with my own petard or something to that end ;)

I wish I'd stayed on it mind you - what a view!

I have driven around Bruge, walked around and ridden my fold up bicycle all around too ~ I obviously do not keep my eyes open wide enough :)) ~ What an adventure you had, but of course after tackling trolls this was a small challenge for you to solve ~ Bravo xxx

Thank you. I'm pleased that you liked this one.

Knowing your energy levels Nick, I guess you may have driven round Bruges like Hamilton, cyled round it like Hoy, and walked round it like Perez. It's no wonder you didn't see this ;)))

Nice of you to say so LGM ... but it was more like drove round like Ali G, then got doped up and rode round like Contador and later walked round it like Roger Federer with a groin injury on a slow boat to China :))) xx

Who the h... is Conatdor?

Nick Weall on June 9, 2011

Alberto Contador is a Spanish Bicycle racer who won the Tour de France last year and later tested positive for having minute traces of Clenbuterol ~ something which has yet to be fully resolved ~ tra la la ....

I just knew he must be a speedy cyclist :)))

Nick Weall on June 9, 2011

yup he just buzzes along :)) Probably in a world of his own full of fairies and mermaids :)))
