Saw photos of the gorgeous bridge and knew I had to visit during my trip. I was not disappointed except it was raining that day and made it hard to photograph

This bridge replaced the previous wooden bridge which had also been blue, therefore this bridge was also painted blue. It looks like a light blue/grey colour due to fading, but if you take a boat tour you will see it is light blue. The original...More
