Island-styleposted by Kerry-Anne
In the foreground you can see the old wooden bridge (dating from 1901) that used to connect Woodbridge Island to the suburb of Milnerton - in fact it still does, but is no longer in use. You can see the newer bridge and the island itself in the background. The residential section of the island is protected by a security gate, and only residents and their visitors are allowed into this section; other visitors (like us) can eat at one of the three restaurants or access the canoeing club on the island, though. We saw a few people paddle past in kayaks while we walked over the bridge - and it seemed a rather tranquil way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
