Life on the river

The tugboat Dana Cruz

Our tea coffers were running dry, so I went up to Kobos Coffee this morning to pick up another pound of Russian Caravan tea. I was riding along the river, and noticed that the “we’re opening the bridge now!‘ bells were going on the Burnside Bridge, so I stopped and looked around to see if anything interesting was waiting for the bridge to open.

This tugboat was it; a fairly short tugboat, but with a very tall mast. Too bad I wasn’t running a little bit faster, because if I was I could have seen both spans of the Steel Bridge being lifted to let this tall ship through.
