Here's Julia's story:
Last weekend it was sunny and Tom and I cycled down to the waterfront. I'm attaching some pictures I took of 'Blue' in front of something recognizably Portland, in this case the Steel Bridge. Not quite as famous as the Taj Mahal, but it's actually interesting to transportation enthusiasts, as it is one of the few rail + automotive + pedestrian + light rail (runs of different tracks than regular rail) drawbridges in the world. And according to Wikipedia, "It is the only double-deck bridge with independent lifts in the world". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steel_Bridge
Julia is a web designer with a terrific-looking website, and she's writing a novel, I gather. Thanks, Julia, for the pic. I'm interested in bridges at the moment as there's one in my new novel - nothing like the Steel Bridge, but a bridge nonetheless.
