When we were watching the white river rafters thinking how high the river was apparently that was nothin'! St. John's Church has seen the might of the Murray River many times, right from the start during the construction in 1861 building was delayed by the winter flood of 1862 because the flood was so bad 'that water rushed through the windows one side and out the other, imagine that! Then there was the Meckering earthquake of 1968, 6.9 on the Richter Scale. This sweet church has been through a lot, now closed for much needed restoration, it has well earned it's place on the heritage trail and I will definitely go back, would have loved to see the windows from the inside. Just a thought, maybe they should have built it on higher ground..
Meanwhile back to the Murray River.. the bridge that you can see in the background above and below is the fifth and hopefully last traffic bridge. Four gone before, the mighty Murray takes no prisoners! Hope you are having a good weekend, happy Sunday, take care and stay safe..
