Liz was down for the weekend a couple weeks ago, so she & I met up at the Sandwich Marina for a walk to the Sagamore Bridge and back. It was a GORGEOUS day. So warm & clear. The trees were on fire.
I hadn't walked to the bridge on this side since the 1980s, before I moved away. They have now marked the miles and half miles on the service roads on both sides. We were so engrossed in our conversation that I didn't notice exactly how far it is from the Marina to the bridge and back. I looked it up when I got home; I never realized it was a 4 mile round trip. Not too shabby!
They are still painting the bridge. See that guy up there? The traffic is a nightmare because of this project which is taking way, way too long.
There was a woman on a bike, that was stopped and looking straight down at the water. At this point, the service road is quite a bit higher from the water than it is on the other side, so we couldn't see what she was looking at. She looked up at us, saw our cameras and said, 'You might want to take a picture of the heron down there.' We were grateful for the heads up!
