Falkirk Wheel and Sewage Treatment

Last Saturday I took a short trip to the Falkirk Wheel. The Falkirk Wheel is basically a large boat lift that lifts boats from one canal up so they can travel on the other canal. Its actually pretty cool to see the thing in operation. It was a beautiful day so I had this nice walk along the canal to get to the Wheel. I was surprised that there was more to do at the Wheel than just watching it spin up and down. While walking around, I found Santa Claus's grotto. Hugh Hefner may have his grotto in LA, but Santa chose to have his in the middle of nowhere outside Falkirk, Scotland.

Today I visited water and sewage treatment plants for work. It was actually a pretty enjoyable experience. I didn't mind the smell but one girl used her scarf to try to filter out the smell.
