Looking west from the Steel Bridge you see the residential side of the river with the West Hills behind, dusted with snow on this wintry day. Just behind the housing is Union Station, the rail terminal for trains coming up from the south and heading north towards Seattle.
In this view from the Steel Bridge of the grain terminal on the Willamette River, you can see a train pulling into the terminal and both a barge and an ocean-going ship in the background. Also note the waterfowl around the barge, they pick up the grain that spills into the water like a dog eating fallen scraps from the dinner table. I’m always pleased to include wildlife in my non-wildlife shots.
You can also see the Broadway Bridge (the red bridge) in the background, and even a little bit of the large Fremont Bridge, the bridge I take on the rare days I drive to the office.
- You don’t have to do everything little Sam says. While I applaud his use of the scientific method, after getting into chocolate you didn’t have to eat a tub of caramel just because he wanted to see if your poop would smell like Twix bars. (In the interest of science, the answer is no. No it did not.)
- You don’t have to believe everything Scout tells you. When she told you that she is the only one who didn’t come from the Humane Society, that was true. But when she told you that she didn’t come from the Humane Society but instead hatched from an eagle’s egg high atop a Sitka spruce, that was not.
- In a similar vein, she’s missing fur on her foreleg because they shaved it at the vet, not because she gave a grizzly bear the what for.
- And please, please don’t listen to Emma when she asks you to bring back a tree when we take you for a walk. It’s only ten more months until Christmas. She can wait like the rest of us.
What happens when your dog eats a whole tub of caramel? I don’t know but we’re about to find out!
In all seriousness, I did call the emergency vet when I got home, she should be fine but with vomiting and diarrhea, oh joy!
Ellie dear, this is not the way to weight loss!
