Conde McCullough, the Oregon bridge man:




And an example of his work, carrying cars across Coos Bay:





There seems to be a gothic look to the archwork. I'll bet that wasn't just structural, but asthetic as well. Either way, they sure don't make them like this anymore.

As close as I'm going to get to church.

Twin Bridges, over the Swinomish Channel. Anacortes, WA.



I was there today hoping to get an aerial shot of John Steinbeck's boat, the Western Flyer, from his book The Log from the Sea of Cortez, which until last month was moored in front of the blue/white boat on the left bank of the channel.

Steinbeck's boat is now in Port Townsend dry dock, which I just now found out through a bit of research this evening, after not finding it in the Swinomish where I expected it today.

http://www.peninsuladailynews.com/article/20130712/NEWS/307129987/celebrated-steinbeck-boat-at-port-townsend-boat-haven

I knew it was there in the Swinomish for almost a year, and I kept it a secret from my KAP ( kite aerial photography ) pal right up the street in Mt Vernon, hoping to score the shot myself first. But sh#t if I didn't screw both of us out of the shot!

Anyway, now I have another excuse to take the ferry over to Port Townsend. The Western Flyer is in the same parking lot as the Port Townsend Brewery now, which is real convenient.

I didn't need an excuse to visit the brewery, but now I have one. Looks like I'm in for a "hoppy" day this week or next!

Is this a bridge to heaven or something?



Or does it a one-way road to a den of perdition?

It really should be Emperor Norton Bridge.

I'm a bit steamed about (worthless) Willy Brown Bridge.

I think the bridge is Swiss. Many languages are spoken and written in Switzerland, also Italian. Though it's a part of an old Roman path...
