Another work week is coming to an end and the weather seems to be changing to the cooler autumn; it is wonderful. And on my usual Friday morning walk up to the I street bridge, I have added an item to my retirement bucket list:

For a day or two, be the I Street Bridge Watchman. In this job, you stay in this little house on the middle of the bridge, you are the lookout and bridge controller. So if a large boat comes down the river, you twist the bridge and let the boat by. What a great job, to sit and watch the river flow and the boats pass by. I can only imagine the view from up there. I bet on a clear day you can see a long way around the Sacramento Valley. I am not sure how you apply for this job but I sure would like to check it out some day. Wishing all a great day.

That sounds like a great job! And in-between the boats, one could sketch and work in their journals! Beautiful spot.
