Hmmmm...

I remember when I was working with this bridge page.

Don't remember if I added it or just edited it though.

Can't believe I would've misspelled the name since the link I put in the description clearly says Pendleton. The Pendleton Bridge Resort Marina is also shown on Google maps to the northeast of the bridge.

Oh, well. maybe it was a bad day or late night. 8^P
