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!
