Wow! Hard to believe a bridge that size would collapse. We were there a few years ago - now our pictures will have to be "before" pictures.

It should make a nice little lagoon instead?

Makes me feel sad. It was a lovely place to take photos. I have several from our family trip there a few years ago.

We read about this in our local paper yesterday - how sad that something that's been such a huge draw to tourists is gone. We're making our first trip there next spring and of course, that is one of those things that we really wanted to see. Of course, we're a bit disappointed about that - but life goes on - and I'm sure that we will have plenty of wonderful things to see and do.

Trip,
OMG, when did that happen?? I remember thinking as I was standing right in the middle of it, that this isn't exactly safe....sure enough, mother nature had her way with the bridge... Still sorry to hear, we took an excursion just to see that.
