Oh! Home on the train!

Home on the train

I initially sat up front so I could have a place to lay my sewing stuff down.

The very front seat of the #skytrain is the perfect spot for resting my hand sewing. I had to "touch up" the zipper for pillow tomorrow.

Why I put it off, I’ll never know. It took me about 15 minutes to sew up the spot that needed a “hidden” few stitches. I still need practice sewing zippers, so I’ll keep practicing. Lord knows I’ve got enough zippers to make stuff with. Just look at this pile! Gigantic.

Anyway, once I finished sewing up that spot – that I’m pretty sure will be spotted by the traditional quilters. Good thing I’m not being judged. I hear quilting judges can be TOUGH. Anyway, I had such a good view of the track and the light was still out, I took photos all the way home…well, to Surrey Central, anyway.

At about the halfway point on the trip, it’s time to hold your breath – it’s a very big graveyard below.

Hold your breath!

Now that I think of it, this would make a lovely tiltshift photo! Just look!


So, after passing the graveyard, the skytrain winds around the rest of Burnaby…then through New Westminster…and then it goes over the skytrain bridge.

Skytrain bridge

This bridge, also known as the Skybridge, is “the longest cable-supported transit-only bridge in the world.” Who knew that? I have been on the longest cable-supported transit bridge in the world nearly every day since December.

A few stops after the Skybridge is my stop – Surrey Central, the home of the asymmetrical glass buildings. They are everywhere in this area.

Asymetrical buildings

And this is where I wait for the bus. In a huge line up. the bus that stops every 10 feet. Oh well. Rumour has it that there will soon be an express bus from Surrey Central to the Newton Wave pool, so we won’t have to wait nearly as long to get to the hot tub party in Newton once that happens.

Dare to dream.
