Wednesday, April 21, 2010 - Coming Home from the Office

I had to go into the office today for a meeting.  Since it's a 1 hour drive each way for me, it was decided that in order not to have nonproductive commuting time, that I would go in for the whole day.  My workday is 5:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. so I had to get up extra early in order to be there for 5:30.  Yawn.  This is the side entrance where I come in and out at the world class hospital where I work.  To the right, but not seen, is a helicopter landing pad, then the Emergency Department.  To the far left is the Cancer Center.  Beyond these doors lies multiple specialties and services, with over 5,000 employees in multiple specialties providing some of the best care and services available for patients who come to us from around the globe.  There are multiple sites for our facility; this is just the main campus.

As I cross the bridge from the main campus to the parking lot, there's a little brook.  The land is quite marshy and woody; and often there are deer along the pathway. 

This bridge joins one of the employee parking lots to the main campus.  It's a pretty walk in the afternoon, a little scary at 5:30 a.m. when there is limited light and dark woods all around.  Ordinarily I'd take the parking lot bus, but it doesn't run so early in the morning.  Let's just say I didn't dawdle going in, but I had time to look back and enjoy the view as I left. 


  1. How lovely! Thanks for sharing that beautiful sky with such fluffy white clouds.

  2. It looks like a very beautiful work setting. It's nice that they've left some natural surrounding intact.

  3. Hey the setting. I am sooooo into environmental you probably know...and 'leave free' areas such as this are wonderful.

  4. How nice to see where you work. It is great that you have some nature walk nearby.
