Several years ago I lived full time on Ruxton Island, and it is there from whence these few photos come. As a brief preamble, I unfortunately lost everything on my laptop, which contained a few thousand photos from that time, due to corrosion. I've tried all sorts of things to try and bring the photos to life by any nefarious means I can think of, but all to no avail. I do have quite a few books on the gardens of Japan and all the related subjects, and if my memory serves me, this little bridge was built as a miniature of a similar looking bridge in Japan, possibly one of the temple gardens, but I can't remember which one. Subsequent to the construction of this small bridge, I made a pond over which I did another single span bridge about 20' long. Sadly, all I can find on that one is photos of the big timbers, I think about 3" by 14" by 20 feet long, which I cut on my small backyard sawmill. There is a full set of pictures with explanation of how the entire bridge went together on a DIY site, but my attempts to retrieve those photos failed.
