Bridgewater

I made an unplanned stop while I was touring Bridgewater. I saw a sign for Sawhegenet Falls Park. I was hoping to get lucky again and find another waterfall! The Pemigewasset River flows slowly here, so, no waterfall, but my stop wasn’t wasted. As I was walking down the hill to the river, I heard the unmistakable sound of an eagle. As I came out of the wooded area and into a clearing, I watched as a pair of eagles were aggressively chasing off a crow. I wasn’t able to get a shot of it, but it was amazing to see. I sat along the water’s edge, waiting for the eagle to take to the sky again. It was a very peaceful spot to sit for a while…

I wish more towns would put up signs like this one…

Lucky for me, it’s fall and the road wasn’t a problem. There were plenty of photogenic scenes to be found along the class VI roads. I was a bit surprised at how many houses there were. Many of them appear to be year round residences, so I’m guessing they must plow the roads themselves. A small price to pay for such views…

The original town hall is still standing…

Bridgewater-2405

It was in use for 110 years, from 1806 to 1916. I’ll bet this barn has been around nearly as long!

Thanks for coming along with me to Bridgewater!

    Lovely shots! I don’t know where Bridgewater is but it looks like a great spot for fall foliage viewing. Love the shot of the grinding stone.

    I didn’t even know we had a Bridgewater. It’s obviously a beautiful place. Any day you see an eagle is a good one!

      I’ve learned about lots of towns I didn’t know we had! I could have sat next to the river and watched the eagles all afternoon!

    Beautiful scenery and an eagle! We don’t have eagles here at all so I’ve never seen one

      I wish I’d been able to get a better picture of the eagles, they truly are spectacular.

    Just to let you know, my blog was hacked. The code was too corrupted to save it although I may be able to salvage something given time. I’ve decided to cut my losses and start over on http://www.iwalkalone.co.uk. Maybe some of the old posts will make it there at some point. Right now I’m licking my wounds. If you haven’t done it already please back up your blog. It would be a terrible thing to lose it 🙂
