Heading To Work


Thought it would be cool to see what it's like for everyone as they head out to work.

This is the 5am Kingston ferry. Attachment 193034

My view is the same thing without the water or other scenery, usually 10-12 miles of it. On Fridays it can be all 40-50 miles of it. Sometimes people wave with one finger.

Re: Heading To Work


This is at the light I use to get on the highway near my home. They are building an overpass and I've been taking a picture every morning tp put together when it's done.
The light slows down the beach traffic ($$$$$) and we can't have that.

This is the quicker way home believe it or not, 16 miles of this is actually a good day for a 40 mile trip

Re: Heading To Work


Uhg. Yesterday I had some guy in front of me in the morning. He wasn't going slow, I just hate it when I have to see another car on the way in. I do every once in a whole need to slow down for the bunnies crossing the road.

As I get closer to my house I have to watch for the deer ( never just one at a time), bear and cubs, turtles and tree frogs when it rains.

Some days after it stops raining the frogs are hopping all over the place hard to miss them.
