The Morning Commute

My walk to campus is about 2 miles.  The leaves are turning here and the air is crisp.  I know I’m almost to the City Centre when I walk down a short but steep hill and under a canopy of cedars.  I make a right along the River Wear and follow the path up to the takes to the footings of the Elvet Bridge.  Construction first began on the bridge in the 12th century.  Rowing is a popular sport in Durham.  I like to watch the athletes train for inter-college competitions and against other universities.  I thought I’d take you along on a bit of my morning commute.

The Elvet Bridge is the one beyond the roadway bridge.  The Cathedral, the Castle, and a Double Decker Bus greet us on our morning commute.

It was a busy morning for boats on the Wear.  They take turns going through the spans at Elvet Bridge.
