Escape From Glass Window Bridge – A Kiting Sea Story
As the author of the forum post says, it’s “a short story about how and why I placed myself into this extraordinary life threatening situation and how I managed to get out of it.” The first part of the story gives also some background on Glass Window Bridge and shares some interesting facts. For example, did you know that the glass window arch – before it fell into the se – was pictured in several paintings?
