I was very lucky to get out and get a walk in this afternoon on my lunch half-hour. It's wonderful here today in Portland. A bit brisk, which is just right, and the sun is shining so!

Here's what I consider MY bridge LOL the Hawthorne.

In the foreground you can see part of the marina, with dragon boats tied up at the furthest end of the docks.

A little further on is the Morrison bridge.

Not as pretty as MY bridge, but it'll do! PDX peoples are likely rejoicing as this bridge is finally opening to traffic after having been shut down for repairs for nearly 10 months.

Note the blue skies. Note the fluffy puffy clouds scattered about. Yes, it's a loverly day. Tonight, it rains. Today, it is glorious, and I enjoyed my brief time out in the sunshine.

    It was such a beautiful day yesterday! I too got out for a walk. I envy you working on the waterfront. Wow! What a month you've had (I just caught up with your blogs). Maybe this weekend will give you just the break and motivation you need. I so wish I was going, maybe next year. Anyway, I look forward to your tales when you return. Have fun with sis and Ms Poppy. And you get to meet Penny's Missy Roo! Have a great race!

    There is nothing quite like spring in the Northwest--those glorious sunny days are to be treasured and spent OUTSIDE as much as possible! Beautiful pictures.

    Wow, if you ever offer to sell me a bridge, I will have to seriously consider the offer! (tee hee)

    My son is close by to your bridge! I remember crossing it from the college to get to Voodoo Donuts lol! (it was fun, but honestly I thought that it was a bit of a hype).

    It's good to see you blogging again. I hope things are going well. I am pluggin' along...

    gorgeous emoticon and I love the bridges!! It was cold here...freeze warnings. But it is March so I guess we shouldn't be surprised. Nothing like a walk in the sunshine to give one a positive outlook emoticon

    Nice! Glad you got out for a midday break! I did the same a couple times last week and it had a great impact on my day. Hope it did the same for you...

    So glad you got out today!! Today here it is cold (40) but it's been in the 60-80s so I won't complain. Perfect weather to enjoy then watch the storm tonight!
