Painted Bridge in Bourne

Not too sure of the history of this painted train track crossing, near Aptucxet Trading Post.  I can't remember if it was like this when I moved in 1989 or is new since then.

It's a nice quote.  Pity it was by "Wordsworth" not "Wadsworth".

It's 65 miles from Bourne to Provincetown, so about an hour's drive.

Upper Cape (well not Barnstable, that's mid-Cape).

Lower Cape.

This side depicts Aptucxet Trading Post and a ship in the Manamet River, before it was dug out and became the Canal.

Looking up at the railroad tracks.


  1. That must have taken a lot of time and effort. Pity they spoilt it with that wrong name!

  2. I was thinking about the know with the New England accent, people drop their Rs so much that Wordsworth could, in theory, be pronounced Wadsworth and spelled as such.....

  3. If you were uneducated enough never to have come across his poetry in print...which shouldn't be true for the artist, here, methinks?

  4. You explore the neatest things, to read about your adventures!
