The I-95 bridges over the Pawtuxet River.
Right after passing the I-95 bridges, there is this tree that is mostly blocking the river and constricting the flow into the middle . . .
Going witht the river flow and taking the 1-foot-drop-or-so drop!
Looking back at the small drop . . .
Turtles on Pawtuxet River.
Passing under the I-95 (again!).
We just got past the rail bridge when this AmTrak train whizzed by and I just pointed my camera back and took this shot.
