💙🌴Here I am standing before the #ulele spring!
Ulele (pronounced "you-lay-lee") is located in Tampa Heights on the Tampa Riverwalk in the old Water Works building. The building was the original pump house in 1903 and served the city of Tampa water from the Ulele Spring on the property. Now the Water Works building is a wonderful restaurant that anchors the #tampariverwalk.

The spring is named after #PrincessUlele, reputed to be a Native American princess who lived in the 1500s. The Tocobaga tribe of the Tampa Bay area captured three Spaniards and sought to exact revenge for the brutal actions of explorers who had landed 11 years earlier. As the legend goes, the chief's daughter, Ulele, took pity on Ortiz and threw herself onto his body until her father agreed to spare his life.

Historians are mindful of the similarities between this tale and another famous clash of New World with old — John Smith and Pocahontas, seven decades later. Some think the British explorer Smith studied dispatches from North America including, perhaps, the story of Ulele and Ortiz, before heading to Jamestown, Va. To embellish accounts of his own adventures, Smith may have added in elements of the Florida story.

Ulele Spring is the only natural spring within the urban portion of the City. The spring didn't work as it should for nearly a century but now, after a major overhaul, freshwater flows of 672,000 gallons per day flow from the spring to the Hillsborough River. This spring water flow enhances vegetation and creates prime habitat for a variety of fish, crustaceans and mammals. To date over 18 species of fish and crustaceans have been documented within the newly restored spring run; in addition, manatees now frequently visit this spring along with their offspring.💕

In honour of Boysie's @boysie_the_beardie birthday weekend we wanted to share with you the history of our much loved island.
Savary Island runs east-west, an 8-km long, 1-km wide clay ridge covered in sand – an atypical landscape which most resembles a hideaway in the south seas. An atmosphere of history pervades the place, highlighted by tales of coastal Indians using it as a principal summer meeting spot, and stories of Natives fortifying Indian Point, the western tip, against marauding bands from other tribes. Vast middens of empty clam shells have been found at various places on the island. Captain George Vancouver records in his journal for June 1792 that he sailed past an island lying in an east-west direction, “having beauty such as we have seldom enjoyed”, which he named Savary’s Island. He left no indication of who Savary was, which remains a mystery to this day. The island was occupied at that time, and for an estimated 4,500 years before that, by the Coast Salish (Sliammon ancestors) First Nations who, influenced by the shape of the island, called it Ayhus, meaning double-headed serpent. The greedy serpent is said to have been trying to reach its cave on Hurtado Point when the Transformer spotted it from the sky and changed it into this island. #shareyourwalk #walkwithboysie #savaryisland #sunshinecoastbc

Third Street Bridge
Rechristened Francis "Lefty" O'Doul Bridge in 1969
Third Street Over Mission Creek
The main span over the shipping channel consists of a 143 foot through riveted steel single leaf bascule truss, complete with electrically driven hoist machinery.

The Lefty O'Doul Bridge is a heel trunnion type bascule drawbridge designed and patented by the Strauss Engineering Corporation. The same architect who designed The Golden Gate Bridge.
The bridge was seen in the 1985 James Bond film A View to a Kill. And
In the 1976 Clint Eastwood movie The Enforcer. #leftyodoulbridge

10pm and still daylight, we're definitely into spring with summer just around the corner. Had a nice walk, met lots of new people on the #bybanen and #bryggen as well as a few pups. Hope your weekend kicked off well.
Two shout outs today, first a big happy fifth birthday to @sandwichthedoodle the Lizard King, the keeper of the socks @socksforsandwich, the air barker, the not quite on the dogsheet, the passenger d'jour of the #alitaxi. We salute you M'lord.
On a sadder note we say goodby to Rugby Chamberlain Burnside @obeytheschnauzer. We just want to say to R)because (aka Rebecca) and Sarah @sarahobeystheschnauzer that we hope the happy memories defeat the pain, he will be missed, and we can't see anyone filling his prancing, straight legging boots.
Sleep well Rugby.

See what you can find in the woods #fantoftstavechurch.
This has an interesting history as it's a reproduction after the original was burnt down in a series of church burnings in the 1990's. It's an example of how extremism in any form destroys, but also how we can rebuild and learn anew.

Today #8mai is #frigjøringsdagen #liberationday in #norway🇳🇴.
Our local park is dedicated to the #motstand #resistance and has a memorial to #fredrikkayser one of the #herosoftelemark who helped destroy the heavy water facility and prevent German efforts to building an atomic bomb. It's a constant reminder of how much we owe the few who risked all for our freedoms.

I don't know anything about #JacksMeatloaf @goldendoodlebe, as you know I'm a #livertreats kind of pup, we did go #noodling for Jack, in search of a #doodleclubhouse. Someone's got here first though, it's an #artgallery #wouldyoubeliveit #gallerikronborg possibly the smallest gallery in the world, certainly one of the most unusual locations as it's on #rundemanen. I'm sure you and Jack would love it though.
