Paddling Under London Bridge…Really

London Bridge. The ACTUAL London Bridge, the very same one that used to span the Thames, was taken apart brick by brick and shipped to Lake Havasu in 1968. It was reassembled on land as part of a real estate development plan, and then had a river dredged out from beneath it. Seriously…you can’t make this up. But apparently the plan worked out, as this area is now a hopping tourist mecca, with London Bridge smack in the middle of it. So of course we had to get out there and paddle under it, and later walk over it, because…why not? I mean, they seem to have gone to so much trouble to get it here! Anyway, you can read more about the history of how this happened on Wikipedia.
