Mingling among the crowds at Waterford’s Tall Ships Festival 2011, I was struck by the range of social bridges which emerged from the experience. I write about the personal memories evoked by the Festival: the connections with Waterford’s history; and the range of fascinating people with whom I was fortunate enough to meet. This post can is in Section Seven of my writings on Social Bridges.

Waterfords of the World: The Journey Begins
The idea of building connections between all the Waterfords of the World has been on my mind for a number of months now. However, the idea truly came alive last Sunday when I had the opportunity of meeting with The First Selectman of Waterford, Connecticut, Mr. Daniel Steward to discuss it. In Section 5 of Social Bridges, I describe this meeting which took place as I had the honour of driving him through Waterford City and out along the Copper Coast to lovely Stradbally.
