You may remember I posted the picture at the end of this post, of the new wheelchair accessible sidewalk that was added to the new bridge downtown. I commented at the time that it would open up the entire far side of the harbour for me to explore. But I'm sad and disappointed to say that this is not actually the case.
Blogger and Microsoft have messed things up again, changing both some of Blogger's format and Microsoft's photo uploading process. Blogger again loaded up all my photos in reverse order, so what was a ride up from the harbour has become a ride down to the harbour. And you'll have to wait for the end to learn about the sidewalk to nowhere.
Heading down the hill I saw that three loads of big blue pipes had been dropped off on the south side of Nelson Street in preparation for construction to come.
There were remnants of an asphalt path in places, badly eroded on one side and too narrow for a wheelchair, making it quite unsafe in places. I finally gave up, rode back on the grass and across the bridge to get home My dreams of exploring the far side of the harbour are dashed!
