Weekend Reflections - Crim Dell Bridge at William and Mary College, Williamsburg, Virginia

Crim Dell Bridge is an icon at historic William and Mary College in Williamsburg, Virginia, which has taken on mystic powers; at least in campus lure.

According to campus legend, if you kiss someone on the bridge, you will marry that person. So powerful is the lure of the bridge that many couples, apparently unsure of their love, avoid it altogether. Who knows, the ambience of the site could result in a tiny peck on the cheek sealing a couple’s marital destiny for all eternity. Luckily, recent generations have found a cure for such a dilemma; if you want out of the relationship, you just throw the former object of your affection off the bridge into the dark waters below.

We don’t know if a cure has been found for the theory that any single woman who crosses the bridge alone is destined to be a spinster.

Myth or not, it is a beautiful location which apparently is the site of many proposals for William and Mary students. (At least that's what the college student we know who proposed there tells us).

These pictures and the reflections are so pretty. As an early American history buff, and having visited Williamsburg a few times, I can't help but be drawn to your site.

It's funny. The whole thirty some years I lived in the area I was never once on the William and Mary campus. :)

That bridge...gorgeous! I love your blog and am going to follow it. My husband and I love Williamsburg so much we went there for our honeymoon. We just love places filled with history. You photos give me little pangs of jealousy...in a good way. Glad you are sharing all this beauty with us.
