more pretty pictures :)

The other morning I ended up being out really early, so I decided to really take my time on the way to work and take pictures and relax.

The city was looking beautiful as it was getting started for the day

Straight ahead to downtown

But I'm going to the right

Here we go!

Going around and under the bridge I just went over

Here comes the south waterfront and the tram

There is a shipyard next to the tram and south waterfront buildings

I still had about a half hour until I had to be at work, so I got a cup of coffee and sat on a bench by my bike and sipped away

Finally I got up and headed onto the tram - as usual, there were at least 4-5 other bikers on the tram, and it was quite full with other people as well

I got off at the top of the tram, and decided to take a few pictures

Downtown...

My whole morning commute in one panorama - the bridge, the south waterfront, the tram...

And there goes the tram back down the hill...

On the way home, there were some birds migrating lazily (above the mountain)

I definitely missed the majority of traffic going over the bridge

At 12th and Clinton, I got stuck behind a freight train that was coming through

But otherwise made it home quite uneventfully. Cheers!
