Tickle Tummy Bridge: Fort Pierce, Florida

Moore's Creek Bridge, an arch bridge over Moore's Creek, is nick-named Tickle Tummy Hill. It was built in 1925 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.

The reason why it is nick-named Tickle Tummy is because when you drive quickly on Second Street and pass over the small bridge at that same speed, you get a little tingle in your gut because of the bridge's high rise relative to its short span. Like going over a long speed bump. Or a roller coaster.

Right by the bridge are these painted fishes on the fence which are part of a community art installation project. For the "Fish on the Fence" the public was invited to paint a fish or manatee and place it on the fence that surrounds the empty block on north 2nd street. The fence needed a jazzing up.....I think it looks great.
