This gives you a little perspective on how huge the bridges are.  Se the man standing under one of the pillars.

WE have arrived at Hoppies and we are just waiting for all the other boats to tie up before we come in.  Now you must listen to the attendants as you are not allowed to step onto the dock until you are fully tied.  They  cross your lines and make sure everything is safe as the barges come through all nite and you don’t want to come loose or bounce all over.  Guess where we ended up the first boat on the barge which means we get to catch and stop all the logs coming down and bouncing on all the boats.  HAHHA

That’s us you can just see the top of our boat and the building is the washrooms on the barge.  Pretty neat actually.
