Paradise for Transportation Geeks

In Seattle for two days. We went twice to Chittenden Locks and watched boats float magically up as the lock filled, while we contemplated Big Engineering in the style of a century ago,

and also watched the salmon in the fish ladder at weir #18, the level where they built an underwater-viewing gallery.

We spent hours in the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field.

Seattle is a paradise for transportation geeks. Planes and boats and trains and freeways, waterfronts and walkable neighborhoods and all.

I was with old old friends (er... actually... former communal spouses). Then they headed back to their respective homes these several decades later,

and me on to visit family in Florida.

Odds are you won't hear from me for a few days.
