The Right Thing

Sunday, March 13th, 2011

Our trip to Japan was canceled as of this morning, pending refunds from airline and hotels, etc. We did not have trip insurance, sadly. In light of the circumstances in Japan, this should not be  a problem. The US government is advising against travel there until April. Several people in our group have already canceled. It was a small group to begin with. We are sad, but mostly sad for the suffering of the people of Japan. It seems surreal.

I find myself with 3 weeks of time for who knows what!

I finally got the bridge piece done.  You know how I get these love/hate things going with work like this.  Up above is a detail shot of the Fremont Bridge.

Here is the Sellwood Bridge which in reality is old and crumbling and held together with epoxy glue. It is due to be replaced, soon. It is the bridge to which we live the closest.

This is the Burnside Bridge which we use the most when we go over the river to the west side.

The red bridge is the prettiest of our bridges, the St. John’s Bridge.

I am off to get a good night’s sleep.
