Not quite the Brooklyn Bridge, but not swampland in Florida...

As promised, I got some better pics of the bridge that Brother #2 bought from said brother. Cousin Bill also sent along a picture, that you can see in his comment on the original post.

In bragging about this purchase, B#2 mentioned that the condition of the wood was pretty good, considering how long it had been "out there." When I asked where "out there" was , he clarified with this shot from Google Maps:

Right. That makes it so clear.

Actually, he clarified that what you're looking at is a City of Cypress storage yard. The bridge is the large diagonal object in the bottom center of the picture, just above and to the left of the red car parked at the end of the cul-de-sac at the bottom of the picture.

Here's a slightly closer view:

It really is worth bragging about, seeing as how at $200 it cost less than a iPod Nano, which is only several thousand times smaller.

Although it's hard to say which is cooler--owning a bridge or an iPod Nano--the bridge is pretty cool.
