When the weather is nice here, there are so many ways to get around and so many fun sights to see along the way.

Like this one from a lunch time walk:

Or this one from my bike commute home:

A new branch of the light rail opened up a month ago.  Welcome to town, Green Line!

I spotted these cranes that grace the area that formerly housed the Metrodome on a weekend ride.

On a recent bike ride home, I came across a loose dog.  He had a collar and tags and was super friendly.  He came right to me when I stopped my bike and called to him.  I was thankful because he was at the intersection of a well trafficked street.  Since he had tags, I figured it would be easy to figure out where he belonged.  I tried calling the vet from the rabies tag but the number was disconnected.  So then I called the microchip number and found the nice doggy's owner hadn't registered it!  Nobody was walking around calling for the dog and none of the nearby neighbors recognized him.  Luckily a kind woman stopped when she saw what was up and offered to help.  I couldn't do much more than I had since I was on bike.  She agreed to give him a ride to animal control.  As you can see from the picture, he was totally cool with that.  I hope he was reconnected with his people!

Another funny transportation related tidbit: I have an international trip planned for September and will be doing a bit of driving.  In order to legally do that, I needed to get an international driving permit.  My permit was mailed with a cute post it note from a AAA employee.  By golly, I think I will have fun! Thank you, AAA!
