Flying Bogie-Doubles

Well we are back from our break tonight. So it is time to provide an answer to last week’s What is it Wednesday.

Michael you were half right. But it was no ordinary bridge.

Kitty, good detecting Kitty there was no driver. But it was not on a ferry.

John has nailed it (methinks you have seen similar gear in operation)

Linda yes, “a truck” was not quite it.

Now here is the image, this was taken in Portland (Victoria) on Wednesday.
It is at the harbour where literally mountains of wood-chip are unloaded off these bogie-double semi-trailers.They have two pit-bridges in operation unloading chip so it can be transferred to bulk-carrier ships to go to be turned into paper (probably in Japan).

Thank you Sharon for the compliment.

Here is another sample from my holiday.This feature is called (rather unimaginatively) “The Arch”

It lies between The Twelve Apostles and Port Campbell where we stayed for three nights.

More to come…

There's a rock formation very similar on Mackinaw Island minus the foaming sea. Beautiful.

Oh, and it too is very unimaginatively called "Arch Rock".
