Noooo! My trusty little car that so bravely clambered the heights of Mount Leinster made a noise today that it shouldn’t have made and stopped working. I’m hoping it’s not too broken, but while I await the verdict and steel myself to be broken-hearted and broke financially, I am consoling myself by seeking out other broken bits and pieces I’ve found on my travels. First up, appropriately, a rusted and broken up old car at an outdoor museum in Winthrop, Washington. My car looks shinier but is equally immobile at the moment. 😦
This gorgeous pergola in the heart of Seattle’s Pioneer Square has been broken more times than I can count. In fact, just after I wrote this article about it, a bunch of reckless Seahawks revellers damaged it by partying on its roof! The good news is that a whole group of more responsible Seahawks fans, not wanting to be tarred with the same brush, chipped in to have it repaired.
And finally, a much pleasanter kind of broken – watching dawn break over the wings of an airplane.
