From Where I walk ~PhotoADay

I brought my camera with me along with the PhotoADay list thinking I’d get caught up on some of the daily prompts I’ve missed. 

Then I got distracted when I saw the bridge job. So I stopped to check on the bridge progress.

They had a yellow metal basket filled with rocks/crushed rock/grout or something being pushed over to the crane and pile drilling rig on the green floating raft in the middle of the water.

The crane reached down to pick it up.

The white hard hat and yellow vest hooked the cable

up up it went.

And set it down next to the pile drill rig.

Then the drill came up with the spiral bit on

swung over behind himself rotated it forward, backward

and when he swung back around he had a different drill bit on.

Back down into the hole it went.

back up. For what? I don’t know, I was way over on the sidewalk on the shore.

The white hard hats and yellow vests sat down, they talked on their phones. And watched it drill as the moon came out.

It got dark quickly and I realized these guys were probably going to work straight through the night so I headed home.

 

Here’s the video I took. Please excuse that wiggling. I didn’t realize how much wiggling I do in under 2 minutes!
