As I wrote in the past, I rode a ten speed bike across Canada and the United States! I know a beautiful site when I see one.

My person of the week goes out to the individual who came out with this wonderful idea! It used to be a train bridge but they changed it to a walking trail! Who's the genius who came out with this brainstorm??? Do you know? Please let me know?

During my protest, I would stand on the deck of the bridge and asked myself- How long am I going to stay in that tent. The Legislature is located in the background!

So this mysterious guy is my person of the week!!!

Toursists love it and it's a real asset to Fredericton. Usually these type of things get torn down but someone was willing to sink the money into it and came up with a gem. Brad Woodside probably knows the story behind it. Next time your down by the Carleton II, Charles look him up. Maybe he'll take you for a ride.

Yes Charles, I remember that bridge I used to walk it once years ago talk about a real challenge for a blind person. That was when the tracks were still there and there was no solid bottom under those ties. and I was wearing a pair of Cowboy boots with about 2 1/2 high heels. talk about tricky. I am glad they kept the original bridge for a walking bridge, I wish they could have kept the old Carleton street bridge and used it for something like that. I guess it was too far gone to bother with.It is nice to know that progress does not necessarily mean that we have to do away with everything from our history.
