You are correct Skip. You are now up.

An interesting spot, it is known as the narrowest place on Earth. The bridge is over an opening with the Atlantic on one side and the Bight of Eleuthera on the other. This bridge was moved by a fierce Atlantic storm approximately five feet.

Recognized it because Eleuthera is where I went on my very first cruise. Had to look twice since it has been forty years and the details are a bit fuzzy after that much time.

If I recall the history, at one time not too long ago there was a land bridge there connecting the halves of the island but that was broken down during another large storm.

Am on the road today and my cruising photos are back in FL. Will post a new photo by tomorrow.

Here's a picture of the original stone bridge which was destroyed by a series of storms in the 1940s. Concrete bridges were destroyed in 1992 and 1999.

Cuttyhunk seems to be a good call, although it is one of the most southern place to find those birds in the northern hemisphere...
