Friday Bonus
When I'm on the road I'm always on the lookout for interesting transportation items. I thought I'd share some of them as Friday Bonuses.

One of my favorite bridges is not some massive structure spanning a river. It's found in Ogunquit, Maine. The Perkins Cove drawbridge is not just the only pedestrian-only drawbridge I've ever seen, it's the only drawbridge I'm aware of that anyone can operate. When a boat blows its horn, you push a button that raises the bridge.
