Marcelo Fernan Bridge - Watery Wednesday


I have crossed a thousand bridges
In my search for something real
There were great suspension bridges
Made like spider webs of steel
There were tiny wooden trestles
And there were bridges made of stone
I have always been a stranger
And I've always been alone...


Crossing Mactan Channel through the old Mactan-Mandaue bridge a few weeks ago when I snapped this photo of the Marcelo Fernan Bridge. This cable-stayed bridge connects the islands of Cebu and Mactan.

Hi Luna,
Lovely photo and your poem is fun the way it connects with your photo.

Wow! The bridge is so expansive! I've never seen such a beauty like this! Naku, matagal na akong di nakapunta sa Cebu, the last was in 2005! Oh, progress, and thanks for sharing.

Fantastic bridge! I hope we can go to Cebu soon — only been there once and it was for a conference.

Happy Watery Wednesday!

hi, Ebie! the bridge was opened in 1999...baka nadaaanan mo na, di mo lang napansin.:P

hi, Lawstude! i prefer this bridge over the old bridge which is always congested. the hotel i usually stayed in Mactan is beside this bridge but i think the old bridge is much nearer to the malls like SM and Ayala.:P

This bridge looks like it spans a large area. The view is lovely.

I like the bridge - it looks less melancholy to me than the poem sounds :)
