  • I've never seen a tug boat go through the channels with a load before. That was pretty sweet to watch. It was interesting to learn how the channels worked. The view from the middle of the bridge is gorgeous. I didn't get the chance to throw it into my excercise routine, but I think it'd be a good addition. I don't like spiders, so I didn't like to get close to either side of the bridge to get a better view. But, there's nothing that can be done about them.
  • Brought the family here for a stroll. Scenic and serene. Plenty of parking. Walkways were fairly clean, but there were indications of pet traffic. Most people seemed pretty good about picking up for their pets. We only stayed for about an hour, but I imagine the sunset would have been pretty epic from here.
