A fun perk of the bike ride to and from work is that it is a fairly complete exploration of containerization and ocean shipping. We live by a bunch of distribution centers, where large trucks drop off and pickup goods. Right past the warehouses are train tracks that lead to the docks. My office is more or less on the docks, about 2 blocks from the working waterfront were container ships offload and take on cargo.
Biking to work everyday I get to see all the different stages of the process, and if I get stuck waiting at a train crossing, I usually get stuck waiting for the same train again, closer to the water a couple minutes later! 😂
