A favorite line from an old favorite song called “London Homesick Blues” which is on the Outlaws album, I do believe, back in the ‘70s … the one with Waylon and Willie and a couple of obscure artists …. (Note to self: Discuss that song at greater length in the future)
And what is a self-respecting Brit meant to do when so close to an icon? He drives 3 hours to Lake Havasu City and gets his pic made at London Bridge! It really is amazing, and so well done. We’d spent ages in the car wondering why … WHY? … WHY!!!??? …. were we doing this to ourselves.
And then we got to Lake Havasu. Wow! It is really the Colorado River. A beautiful ribbon of blue in the desert.
The owner of McCullough Oil bought the bridge from the City of London back in the 60s? 70s? And spent even more money having it shipped to the U.S. and re-assembled. Evidently there was NOTHING in the area at the time. Not even a Lake Havasu City. He founded it all. Talk about vision.
The ol’ bridge looks great and we enjoyed our quick visit! Here’s a few more sights for you … like this scenic view below.
And where we bought gas:
And where we will try to stay if we ever make it back to the area.
