Bridge Porn.

So, Cathedral Park.  I haven't spent much time here in the past, truth be told, but recently I have been brought to this area for the purpose of supporting a dear friend, and while I was driving to her, I passed this amazing view, straight through the bridge supports.  Beautiful. 

Last night, T and I came here, because it was such a great night, and I wanted to get some shots of my favourite bridge in Portland; the St. Johns Bridge.   I drive over this bridge whenever I get the chance... which sadly, living in Southeast Portland, doesn't happen super often.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy the view through my eyes!

Together for a really long time, and we still love to kiss.

OK, now don't get your panties in a bunch.  I was the passenger this time.  I have wanted to take some photos from the top of the span, but am usually driving, or can't get over there during a safe time for standing in the middle.  So... I snapped a few quickies on our way downtown.

Beacon Rock. It rocked.

Lovely Lily, before we started.

Boat marinas.  Not much going on, there.

This trail was nuts!

Ruby, nonplussed as to what the heck was going on, and why... just why... this whole thing was necessary.

Lily Pads

I loved this view.  Unfortunate that there were power poles...

Tiny boat, with about six people inside.

Ru loved these binoculars.  She kept musing over how big everyone looked. 

"Wow, Mom!  Your face is ENORMOUS!"

I loved this tree.

I also loved the view, via the sides.

Islands in the stream, that is what we are...

Hi, Little guy!

Just Chillin'...

Shelly Belly had a great time, as well!

Lil, Ru, Syd.  The trip up was tough on them, but they really loved the trip back down.

So very many switchbacks.  So very many...

REally, so very many.

I think, perhaps, they want us to use caution.
