On to Oregon

Traveling from Seattle south we crossed over the great Columbia River on the Lewis and Clark bridge in the photo below. In the distance you can see commerical ships in the river and other commerce.



Think about BRIDGES for a minute. We certainly take them for granted, but they are important structures that help us get on with our journey. What are some bridges in your life? Certainly education, parents, friends and God are all influences in our life that help us reach our GOALS>

Beautiful pics Lin....bridges..in one of the very interior place my dad an engineer served,there was this river known notoriously changing its course frequently ...so it was impossible to make a bridge....every time when we needed to cross the river ,a boat was arranged to help our vehicle cross over..which was scary and time consuming...so i know how important bridges are.
About the bridges in my life...well you already answered this one.

Is that bridge simply commemorative, or did L&C travel near there?

They sure are important and Seattle does have a whole lot of them.

For the life of me, I can't even begin to fathom how they construct a bridge. And those underwater bridges are nothing short of miraculous to me.

As for the bridges in our lives... you have been a bridge in mine, one that has been willing to "lay me down" as I've navigated over troubled waters. Good friends are also miracles.

Sprirtual bridges seems like too deep of a topic for me right now, but your actual bridge in the photo is an important one for me. It means I'm on the way to the little red cabin in Rockaway!

They are important. This makes me think of the swing bridge in Surf City, North Carolina. Sometimes we just need to get out of our own way, too. Thanks, Lin.

Great picture.

The photos are beautiful, very professional looking. You're getting to be a pro with that camera.

Thanks for sharing this great post on bridges. They are very important and, I like the connection between the man-made structures and influences in our lives as bridges.

I like the new look for your blog.

Bridges..in real life the "Peace Bridge" between Buffalo and Canada comes to mind... in the less concrete sense... my family are my ties to the past and to the future...
