|Henderson Bridge (aka the Red Bridge) crossing from Providence to East Providence at mile 3|
|Looking back across at Providence's Waterman Grille from E. Prov. at mile 3.5|
|Old Bridge forever pointing skyward|
|Munroe Dairy at mile 3.75|
|Munroe still does home delivery! |
I won't need their delivery service at mile 3.75, but ask me at mile 22.
|At mile 4 we head south on the East Bay Bike Path (EBBP). |
We will be back at this spot after mile 24 and headed up this hill.
|Looking back at the Washington Bridge as I head south. |
Mile 24 will take us up and across the bridge.
|At mile 4.5 looking out at downtown Providence from the upper overlook parking lot on the EBBP.|
|This parking lot will be the spot for the water/Gu/Gatorade/Food/Medical stop at mile 23.75.|
|The EBBP is part of the East Coast Greenway from Florida to Maine. |
The EBBP is 14.5 miles long and goes from the Washington Bridge in Providence to Bristol, RI.
|The EBBP is part of The Rail-Trail Hall of Fame. You can still see sections of the old rail line.|
|The EBBP has been closed since Nov 1 from mile 20.5 to 23. I am hoping it will open soon!|
|The upper parking lot is 4.5 miles north of the Crescent Park Carousel, we will get there.|
|Metacomet Country Club on the left side of the Veterans Memorial Parkway.|
|We run across the Amaral Brothers Bridge at mile 5.5|
|Watchemoket Cove - close to high tide|
|New wind turbines in Providence|
|See that orange snow fencing out there on the cove bridge. |
That is where we will be running at mile 22.5 on our way back north.
It is a thin old railroad causeway that is out there exposed to the elements.
|The cove from the bridge.|
|I never knew that the Veterans Memorial Parkway was once know as the Barrington Parkway.|
|The Parkway is one of RI's Scenic roads. There are deer and goose crossings along the way.|
|The road going down to the Squantum Assoc. is off of the Vet. Parkway. |
We will see the club at mile 21.75 once we are back out on the EBBP.
It is a beautiful spot on the Bay.
|Bradley Hospital will be on our right at mile 6.33|
|Bay View will be on our left just after that.|
|There is a play ground right out front. |
My girls have watched me run by at this very spot.
|Just before mile 8 we get to the Dari Bee - YUM!|
|How quickly do you think they can serve a chocolate vanilla twist as we pass back north at mile 20.5?|
|The Crescent Park Carousel in the setting sun at mile 9! I wonder if the calliope will be playing?|
|It is a great ride if you get a chance & you can grab the brass ring if you are lucky!|
|Bullock Cove after mile 9|
|We will already be passed mile 10 and the Clam Shack before 11 am.|
|Clam Cakes, chowder, fish & chips! What is not to like?|
|Bullock cove looking south from the Crescent View Ave. bridge.|
|Brewers Yacht Yard & Marina - Bullock Cove|
|Mile 11 southbound & 19 northbound - Vintner & Wannisett|
|The location of the Vintner Ave Playground.|
|Another great location to watch the runners go by if you have kids. There are even picnic tables under the pavilion, but no restrooms.|
