Mr Monkey trotted along the road, which goes under the bridge then, luckily, loops round and goes up onto it. When he was on the bridge, Mr Monkey realised that, as well as having a good view of the edges of the islands of Styrsö and Donsö, the bridge was an excellent place for peering down onto boats and ferries as they passed. If he'd been a secret agent pursued by sinister minions, Mr Monkey could have escaped by leaping from the bridge onto a boat, but he wasn't, so he didn't.
