Bridges between: a disappearing "bridge"
Nothing there at the moment, apart from a disturbance in the water as the river flows past, but unless you were looking carefully you would probably not spare it a second glance.
But, maybe a week or two later, the disturbance becomes pronounced. There is definitely something there crossing from one side of the river to the other.
Now we have a real clue, there seems to be a way across, or at least there once was.
Finally it emerges in full, usually during the summer months, when the local boys show off by crossing to the other side. It's not as easy as it might look - the gaps are wider than they seem. One day, when nobody's looking, I will try.
