Twin Bridges, er…, Double Bridges

Someone once told me that in Anderson are the “Twin Bridges.” Surely these are them! 🙂 (Editor’s note: well, maybe not. See comments.) Thank you, Barron Cooley, for providing us with such a clear view. Though the bridge(s) look really short in length from this photo, they take a while driving over. I enjoy the moments above the water, it’s a brief thrill, a tickle of the stomach.

Notice the marina off to the left? It’s the same as in the picture below.



  1. Lessie, locals refer to this as the ‘Double Bridges’. Years ago the bridge on Clemson Blvd near Charlie T’s was refered to as the ‘Twin Bridges’, but I have not heard it as that in years.
    Yes, that is Portman Marina in both photos. It was refered to as ‘Portman Shoals Marina’ under the first owners, until 15 or so years ago, it was bought out and the name changed to ‘Portman Marina’. The original name refered to the shoals downstream of the old Portman Dam that is now under water. Remember the Generator on display down town? From that dam.

  2. These two photographs are fabulous and give us much more of idea of the beauty around you. My goodness, it’s fabulous! Well done to the Guest Photographer.
