Mark: “Where did you say the shop is?”

Kate: “Go over the Humming Bridge, then it’s right there – you can’t miss it!  Lookit, want me to just take you?”

Mark: “You’d do that? Swell!” 

Kate: “No worries – you owe me!”


The nickname is because of the noise that the bridge makes.  Some people call it the Singing Bridge.
