I should think so as it opens each day of each month.

Or do you want two?




So the bridge takes ships

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You put all of those pictures in because Simpson Bay is so pretty. I meant the bridge had been under construction until December. Its the swing bridge on the Simpson Bay causeway.

Sea - this must be a new bridge, if it's from Simpson Bay into the lagoon.. far cry from the small one I've been through before.

However that seems a large vessel to be going into the lagoon, so at this point I'm unconvinced - also, do the towers distant in the last shot match St Martin? I dunno anymore....

No, you said was it OPEN. And yes it was still OPEN they hadn't got it closed yet! Lolololol and it only opened officially on Jan 14th 2014

The large blue ship has the swing bridge span on top of it!
So they had to get it through the opeing bridge into the lagoon, and then the other photo its secured in the middle of the new causeway bridge and then winched the swinging part straight onto the hinge.

Quite an operation.

Ok, Seaduction! Well done! Your turn.

Captain Mark can pass judgement on this befuddling predicament. I believe the Simpson Bay causeway just opened a few months ago. Goes from the Juliana airport to the Marigot side of the bay.
edit: I should have waited for Mark's post.

There was eight ships in port one day two weeks ago!
