Along the North River

When I went to Bridgewater on Thursday, I took so many pictures that I'm dividing them into three posts. It was a beautiful afternoon.

 Some mallard ducks were enjoying the nice weather.

I was a little surprised to see the fountain in operation in February, but it was an unseasonably warm day.

Painted rocks form a “rock snake“ made by children of all ages. It is next to a Civil War Trails sign, which tells about the town and river during that war. The bridge had been destroyed, and at one point Confederate soldiers pushed large wagons into the river to use as a makeshift footbridge.

The large dam was built as a mill dam in 1877. It is an impressive spot to visit.

Although Charlie was not with me because he does better in daycare than he does on car rides, it doesn’t seem right to post Saturday Critters without a picture of him. 

Filtered in Picsart for Caturday.
