South Queensferry

Post by bren73 » Sun Sep 03, 2017 4:23 pm

In honour of us walking over the new Queensferry Crossing this morning, I thought I would post a few photos from my recent trip out on the water there.

Left from Port Edgar marina and headed under the road bridge towards the original Forth Bridge

Paused for a we look at the town...

...headed on under the "Big Red One".

Paddled on for a bit then headed back towards the new bridge.

No photos of the way back as the wind got up and I had a job paddling into it back to he marina, however a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours on the water.

Loosely related, the Ordnance Survey have put it on the map*
Queensferry Crossing is firmly on the map

*But not on the Online version yet.

Do TomTom have it on the map yet or should I wait a while before downloading an update?

TomTom went mad when I drove over it last week, kept telling me to turn right in the middle of the Forth.

Yeah, google maps has it on, but not apple maps or open street maps yet.

Don't know about TomTom, but Strava thought we were swimming across.
