Say Goodbye to The Memorial Bridge

It’s old news at this point, but the Memorial Bridge will never have vehicular traffics on its deck ever again.  It’s time to turn the page on the saga of the past several years, and while it will be painful for everyone that is used to enjoying the convenience it afforded, I look forward to seeing the process of the old one come down – and a new one get constructed in its place.  In just the few minutes I was here taking this image – I saw a slew of people riding bikes and enjoying a walk on its deck, while also having a quiet on the steel decking that nobody is used to. I will be documenting the process of its demise over the next year or so – as well as the growth of the new bridge from NH to ME.

At Pease Golf Course

One of the beauties of the seacoast is the rich variety of recreational opportunities – from surfing to swimming to day hikes and golfing.  This shot was taken on the Pease Golf Course at the redeveloped former air force base.  It’s rare that I’ve featured shots from outside the downtown or waterfront area…and a nice rich green golf course shot has been long overdue.  With the recent spat of rain, I’m worried it might be a while before I can get back out on the golf course…
