Travel Digest #36 Jacksonville Florida Main Street Bridge

in Haveyoubeenherelast month

Good Morning Hive family, another day blessed to us in this life and reality. It's been a few day since my last travel post here, so here is my Thirty-sixth Travel Digest post and I'd like to present to you a continuous of my trip in Florida, I have been from Fort Lauderdale, to Orlando and then Miami Beach, then all the way down to the Florida Keys and onto the Cruise ship all the way to Nassau Bahamas. Many photo's lost, so many photo's not shown on all these locations but to start bringing to a close of this amazing two week trip of a lifetime and now we are in Jacksonville Florida, to stay a week with another best friend, that unfortunately as we talk about this now, a friend that has been lost thru time, we no longer speak anymore but not all doom and gloom we are just on different frequencies and I wish him well, always. Let's just say I have lost many friends from living around the world but I have moved on, I no longer allow others to drain my energy in this life, its not worth it anymore.

So here is what I have left from Jacksonville, The Main Street Bridge and is now named John T. Alsop Jr. Bridge. The bridge crosses the St. Johns River in Jacksonville Florida, it however is the second bridge built across this river, four lanes of traffic and is a lift bridge as well. This bridge opened in July 1941 and cost $1.5 million in hard earned tax payer dollars. In 1957 the bridge was named after Mayor John T. Alsop Jr., still to this day thought it continues to be known as the Main Street Bridge and even the signs too. This bridge remains one of the most recognizable features of the Downtown Jacksonville skyline.

We took a little walk around each side and even drove over the bridge with a few car shot's too, so let's take you thru the post now, glad you took the time out to check out another post on my blog, appreciate it. I had a hard time figuring out what cover shot to choose and finally made up my mind with this one, something about the trees in the shot I like. Anyways, have a look and thank you, have a blessed day or night wherever you are in this world.

Pretty cool looking water feature they have here too, pretty massive thing but I used to build these and come on you could make the water higher than that, haha. Probably smaller due tot he wind the whips thru here.

This would be Jacksonville stadium, A nice stadium, I will be doing another small post because I actually have been their too. We had went to the Monster Jam, if you know what that is and if not, you'll see in a future post. I once wanted to make it to as many stadiums as I could but now that I let the whole sports thing go, probably wont. So much better things in life than sports, yea crazy for me to say, I was a sports nut.

This shot is real nice too and if you haven't figured out by now I love Architecture and structures big time, it amazes me what we can build but also amazes me what we destroy as humans.

The Chicken Koop Wings & Things, yea in the hood, haha. This was delicious and I even wonder if they still have them over in Jacksonville.

We managed to hit up the beach for a bit too but it was a windy day, so we couldn't stay that long but it was a nice stroll on the beach.

Pretty cool storms and clouds that come in thru Jacksonville, I don't think I could live like this. The weather here in Florida is to crazy.

As we set our sites on leaving Jacksonville and on our way to airport to go back to California we get another bridge to cross, this things was amazing too and massive. The newest and probably the most visually impressive bridge, commonly known as the Dames Point Bridge, is officially the Napoleon Bonaparte Broward Bridge and was named for Florida's 19th Governor.
