The Three Sisters

     I took a trip to South Queensferry this week to have a look at the new bridge over the Firth of Forth. The last section of the bridge was lifted into place a week ago and now joins her two sisters in joining the Lothians and Fife in Scotland.

    The Queensferry Crossing as it has been named, is a cable-stayed bridge, 2700 meters in length and the centre tower deck now has its place in the Guinness World Record Books. Being recorded as the largest freestanding balanced cantilever in the world.

   It's not every day you can go and see history in the making.
