Some Local Scary Waters

The remainders of the Point Pleasant-Byram bridge ,that crossed the Delaware River, was washed away in the flood of 1955.
Last week  looking for signs of the Osprey that were reported to have nested here last year.




THEY SHRUNK!


Manny & I were about 10 feet lower than that rock in the other picture!




Canoeing anybody? Entrance to Bull's Island, bridge over the canal.






The "Walk Over Bridge" at Bull's Island. That would be Pennse on the other side. Been on (& fished under) this bridge a gazillion times, this was the first time I ever got creeped out. Actually had a little "vertigo" thing going on.....





Riding along the PA side just below Upper Black Eddy



In PA looking at Frenchtown Bridge



I was checking out the river and surrounding area around 2:00 pm. At that time the river was approximately 24.5 feet and is expected to crest at 26.6 sometime after midnight.

Wow that river is moving fast!! It is wondrous and dangerous at the same time.

1) You're a lot braver than I am, walking on that little swing bridge over flood waters...

2) The osprey nest was in a snag (dead tree) on the Pennsy side. If you line up with the old bridge piers, it was just to the south of the bridge right-of-way.

3) Nice photos. You've got a good eye for it!

Ohhhh boy....that river is really, really moving! I hope the water stops rising so no one has any property damage or loss of life. Nature is so powerful. I would have had vertigo, too!

We've had tons of rain here, too. Whenever water gets that close to a functioning bridge, it's always a little or a lot scary. Hopefully, you'll dry out a bit before the next spring storm.
