Trains and Bridges

Here is the railroad bridge over the South Fork of the St. Lucie River.  It's a drawbridge, and it stays up all of the time except when a train comes through.  The trains are part of the Florida East Coast Railway system, running from Jacksonville to Miami, and right through my bedroom.  Well, it sounds like it anyway.
"Florida East Coast Railway operates 351 miles of mainline track along the east coast of Florida with direct rail access to South Florida's ports and the best reliability record in the nation. FEC also serves five intermodal terminals and provides drayage services for our customers."
Dick caught this white boat going under the railroad bridge, and then again going under the traffic drawbridge:

Another shot of my favorite fountain.

Today while he was out for his morning walk Dick found three caches, and that's when he got the great pictures.  The funny part was that he forgot to take a pen with him, so we drove back over there later so he could sign the logs.
