WP PHOTO CHALLENGE 4/4/2014:
NEW ENGLAND BRIDGES
The WordPress Photo Challenge for April 4, 2014, is threshold: a point of entering; that point just before a new beginning — capture “threshold.” My first thought was the lions guarding the Rockingham Hotel entrance in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. However, I’ve written two posts about them, which include photographs.:
My mind next went to bridges, which in fact and metaphorically are thresholds to adventures “on the other side.” Thus, I present some of the New England bridges we crossed while in New England in September, 2013, pictured in the order in which we crossed them.
The Jamestown-Verrazano Bridge connects mainland North
Kingston to Jamestown (Conanicut Island) in Rhode Island.
The Newport (Pell) Bridge connects
Jamestown (Conanicut Island)
to Newport (Acquidneck Island) in Rhode Island.
The Bourne Bridge connects mainland Massachusetts to Cape Cod.
The new Memorial Bridge, which crosses the Piscataqua River, opened August 8, 2013.
Here you see Monte beginning to walk over the bridge from
Portsmouth, New Hampshire to Kittery, Maine, on September 23, 2013.
The Penobscot Narrows Bridge opened December 30, 2007. Its observatory (atop the support post) opened on May 19, 2007. This bridge observatory is one of 4 in the world, and the only one in the United States. Read more about this bridge and the Penobscot region:
