Moses Bridge Reaches 17th Century Dutch Fort

If you're looking to do some sight seeing at the Dutch 17th Century Fort de Rooveere you'll first have to cross this amazing Moses Bridge. The designers wanted to keep the visual beauty of the fort, but still allow tourists to reach the Dutch tourist attraction.

From afar, the Moses Bridge is invisible to the eye. The flow of the moat appears continuous, as the water level remains at the same level, reflecting  the surrounding foliage. As visitors approach the fort, the bridge appears as a break in the water with its sloping walls containing it.

First lying  flush with the earth, the bridge then descends deeper into the ground.  Lined with wood sheet piling for walls, the deck and stairs sit between. The bridge and its components have been made from sustainable  hardwood that is Cradle to Cradle Gold certified. The Accoya wood is also treated with a nontoxic coating, protecting it from fungal decay and increasing its durability — an ideal material for a sunken bridge.  Like a dam, the walls of the bridge hold the waters of the moat back, and like Moses, the bridge parts the waters so that pedestrians may pass.

The Moses Bridge gives visitors a unique opportunity to pass through partedwaters, to eventually meet a historic fortress of defense.


Depressed...?
Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel , "Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land."
Nearly 75 years ago, (when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land."
Today, Congress has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!
I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc...I called a Suicide Hotline.
I had to press 1 for English.
I was connected to a call center in Pakistan . I told them I was suicidal.
They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck.
Folks, we're screwed!!
