London Bridge . . .



. . . was falling down, so someone moved it.
Across the ocean to Arizona.
Lake Havasu City, Arizona to be exact.

Believe it or not, this is one of only two shots I have from Lake Havasu.  We were there for a few hours in 2006 when we traveled to the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas.

Did you visit the falls? There's an underwater cave there & I saw on some vacation show that Tom Cruise swum under & into the cave a while back... I'm not a big fan of his, but a bit of trivia for ya! LoL! =)

That looks like a beautiful place. What a lot of trouble to get a bridge. But Wisconsin doesn't have a bridge that once spanned the Thames, so I think it's pretty cool!

Did you notice that all the individual blocks are numbered? It was disassembled, shipped, and put back together much like a jigsaw puzzle. I lived in Arizona for almost 40 years and went to see the bridge once. I think we Americans only think about visiting places if they are far away. I was astounded when moving there how few locals had ever been to the Grand Canyon. It didn't take long to adopt the same attitude!

That is a great shot! I've never heard about the London bridge in Arizona. How cool.

Wonderful photograph - the bridge looks very settled. When I was watching the flotilla of vessels sailing down the River Thames (to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee) the other day I began to wonder how London Bridge was getting on in USA and now I know. Thank you for answering my unspoken question.

We owned a little parcel of land here and visited quite a few times. The city of Lake Havasu is set in some beautiful desert, made more amazing by the lake at its doorstep. Yet the bridge always seemed a little silly to us. It was moved there by the original developer in an effort to attract more tourists. That it did. But it still seems kind of peculiar.

Gorgeous shot, Amy! I really like the trees, too.
