My recovery continues to move along well. While it still will be a while before I am back in full swing out of my sling, I can focus on some fun things in the meantime…or points of interest.
First, North Kingstown High School’s athletic complex is currently undergoing a 3 million dollar overhaul. The school and grounds are almost 20 years old. While the track has not been appropriately maintained for several years and was unable to hold meets for a long time, the complex itself has seen much action. Hopefully, this renovation will keep the sports programs and performing well and hosting many exciting games, matches and meets for years to come.
Second, along Post Road, behind the North Kingstown Chamber of Commerce is a property that is slated to have about 20 homes installed. This project has been in the works for several years and looks to be well underway toward building. While the old home on top of the hill was taken down a few years ago, this interesting piece of land should add to the continuing debate about the number of new developments in town.
Finally, some aerial shots of Rockwell Amusements at the old Tarbox Toyota lot on Post Road. When I was a kid, this used to be held at what is now the Gateway to Quonset where Home Goods, Dave’s and Kohls is now. I’m sure time has faded the accuracy of my memory, but I feel this event used to have more rides and fanfare. While the weather of the first two days has muted attendance, hopefully, the rest of the weekend shows a significant increase. (Shots of the location were at dawn to avoid flying over people – Thursday was rained out, and Friday was open after all-day rain)
This weekend will bring me to Maine, and I will bring some of my gear to hopefully gain some fresh lakeside shots as well as some astrophotography!
