It sure has been pretty here.
Most mornings, I have celebrated the day
with a walk down to the river.
I've shown you this bridge before.
It was designed and built in 1892
by the Roebling Company--
experts in their time
in designing and building suspension bridges.
(The Brooklyn Bridge was also designed and built by Roebling.)
Mill workers used it to cross the river by foot
every day to go to work and back.
It carries two abreast.
It has been recently restored
and is enjoyed by many in the area
for its beauty, and for the way it moves with you
as you walk on it.
Downstream about a half mile,
there is another bridge that carries cars and trucks.
Restored mills are on both sides of the river.
Two of my docs have offices in those mills.
The view from the windows is grand.
Don't know if you can make it out,
but in the bluest part of the river above
there is a reflection of
the black railroad bridge
which also crosses the river nearby.
Every walk takes me from bridge, to bridge
Today the water was like glass.
Behind that little rocky island,
I spent some time watching a cormorant
fill its tummy with little fish.
This is a wonderful place to reflect each day.
(Pardon the pun.)

Just wanted to say hi, and thank you for
continuing to drop by and leave your
good spirits and kind thoughts.
I keep up with you all several times a week.
(I sneak in and sneak back out when you aren't looking.)
