The Millau Viaduct is part of the new E11 expressway connectingParis and Barcelona and features the highest bridge piers ever Constructed. The tallest is 240 metres (787 feet) high; and theOverall height is an impressive 336 metres (1102 feet), making thisThe highest bridge in the world. It's taller than the Eiffel Tower. Interestingly, the Millau Viaduct is not straight. Why? It's because a straight road could induce a floating sensation as You drive across it. So, a slight curve remedies that feeling. The curve is 20km in range. Moreover, the road has a light Incline of 3% to improve the visibility and reassure the driver. An amazing engineering feat!
I would have to close my eyes!!!
I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. We did. We didn't do too much, which was nice. We have something every night again this week so we will be busy!
Saturday we just hung around, Rich went to ride, the boys and I stayed home. Sunday the boys went to their mom's in the morning for Easter and then we went to my parents.
Here are some pictures:

Hopefully this afternoon I can get started on another project. I have several that I would also like to finish, but I do have to get some more batting. Which would require a trip to town, which I will not do unless I have several stops to make.
I have decided though that I am going to make several bags to take to the grocery store so I don't have those stupid plastic ones! I hate those! I think I have about 100 in my pantry...I don't need more!
I know this wasn't a very exciting post, and I apoligize. Its just been busy and I have been playing rummy for three days. Sorry! Hopefully my next post will have something more exciting in it!
