ABC Wednesday - U

(The Wordless Wednesday post is beneath this post.)


U is for Under the Bridge .......




water under a stone bridge



This old foot bridge is constructed of solid Granite blocks.

It is in a local park and is named Pierce Bridge, after our 14th US President, Franklin Pierce.

The park was established in 1884, and is one of the oldest in our state.

It is enjoyed by families and individuals in all our New England seasons.

  10. Great looking bridge. Nothing like real stone for making things like this.

    Especially when photographed like this too.

    P.S. Did you ever notice that the expressions "water under the bridge" and "water over the dam" mean the same thing?

  18. Arches always fascinate me, particularly stone ones. The keystone and how it works always amazes me. Your bridge is a perfect example of why I marvel at the physics involved. Just beautiful! Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage
