    Not sure how feasible it would be to "prop" up the natural bridge.


    There is however a second much smaller "natural bridge" just off to the left of this shot.

    I had a bit of a "brain fart." Of course a "natural" bridge cannot be restored, LOL!

    i haven't been out to the nautral bridge since its collapse.
    does the ocean rise over the collapse and still come into the little cove?
    therefore making it a "natural pool?"

    have been to the other much smaller and not so magnificent natural bridge , the one to the left of the of the original. it is ok, but not sure it is worth the effort.

    we visited there 2x on horseback.

    We visited last May and it was an interesting sight to see the bridge collapsed, almost as much of a sight to see when it was standing. For new bee's I am not sure it is as interesting of a site to visit. But for folks who have seen it before it collapsed, it is definitely a sight to see.
    There was not enough water in the cove to call it a natural pool when we went in May.

    Take care, Pete

    Here's a picture from Easter weekend.

    A little hard to tell in the photo, but the area "inside" the bridge is bone dry.

    I believe that there are still about 5 smaller "Natural Bridges" still standing in Aruba.

    There is another natural bridge at Colorado Point.



    In this photo of the collapased natural bridge, the water in the "pool" is only about a couple of inches deep.



    For those who did not get to see it, below is the Natural Bridge as it once stood.
