My friend, Sharon and I could not ignore the beautiful sunshine and moderate temps outside her craft studio window. We just had to take a break from our Valentine card making, to head on down to the Spokane River, near her house.
We went down to a site on the river where they are building a new bridge. This sign was removed and saved from the old bridge. The interesting thing here….I learned something new….Spokane (spelled correctly has an extra ‘e’) means Children of the Sun! How apropos is that? Generally, we get a lot of sun here, just not so much in the winter.
I didn’t know that they have to build another type of bridge to make the final one.
It’s still real cold here, see the ice caught on the tree branches?
That water sure looks cold and clear! On that note, I spotted an old barn and headed that way.
It’s just a few 100 yards away but as I look around, I am surrounded by beautiful sights!
I love rust, old wood and sunny days!
