Howard and I walked this park this morning around seven am this morning. We were trying to beat the heat. It was pretty busy already. He got to meet a beautiful little female chihuahua Lilian, who hung out with us for a bit.
I love everything about this park. The people, the beautiful river, and my favorite part the old mill looming over the river.
Blackstone Valley was the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution and seeing these old mills makes me picture how hard the life must have been for the workers. I wonder if they found any joy looking at the river as I do. I hope so…
Here’s a few pics from our visit and a little info about where we where today from the Rhode Island parks department.
