Bridgewater Channel

Yesterday afternoon on our day off we enjoyed a stroll along the Bridgewater Channel. The Bridgewater Channel was constructed by Robert McCullough in 1971 to run water under his desert reconstructed London Bridge.  It cut across the Pittsburg peninsula connecting the waters of Lake Havasu and creating what was to become The Island. Today the one mile channel is a beautiful developed area with a European flair of shops, restaurants, hotels, walkways and parks. The waterway was quiet yesterday, but normally it is filled with kayaks, canoes, fishing and tour boats, paddle boards and ski boats. Sunshine and seventy degree weather made for a perfect stroll along the east bank and a visit to the dog park.
