Short walks this week…only about 35 minutes per, from the LRT bridge area straight through to ‘skunk hollow’. Better than not walking at all, but mostly function, not a lot of form.
The LRT bridge is also a study in function over form. It’s OK, but not spectacular, not like the Cloverdale Pedestrian Bridge. Everytime I walk across this bridge, I think of what might be erected at Louise McKinney in the near future. The city flunkies have assured us that the new Southeast LRT bridge will be a ‘vast improvement’ over this current LRT bridge. “It was a different council who built that bridge, and we have more money.” Oh. OK. I feel better now.
