Sunday In My City - Of Bridges and Bicycles

Greetings fellow Sunday In My City participants!

Not much going on in central Massachusetts this weekend...just a few errands around Worcester.

We saw a big bridge....

Here's a close up as we passed underneath...

...and a little bridge...

And somehow came home with a new bike!

Still trying to figure out how that happened! ;)

Actually our girl is growing by leaps and bounds, and yesterday she had a friend over to ride bikes. I noticed that she kept bumping her knees on the handlebars, so it was time for a new bike. Not quite ready to take the training wheels of yet, though!

Big Bridge = Southbridge Street Bridge in Worcester, MA (Miss Worcester Diner is slightly visible to the right...I heart diners).

Little Bridge = one of the many Providence & Worcester Railroad bridges around here, and this one is in my town. Growing up, the P&W trains ran pretty much right through my back yard. I remember running down and placing rocks or pennies on the tracks before the train came through every afternoon.

Hope you are having a lovely Sunday!

Hi Christine, Thanks for showing us around. Those are great bridges-- they give the area character :-)

And a new bike! Woo-hoo. Lucky girl. I hope she has a blast riding it around.

Happy SIMC,

I love bridges, especially train bridges, or small town bridges. Nice shots! And nice new bike!

I love bridges, too! There's just something so cool about them.

Love the bike! My daughter has never had any interest in riding hers. I'm sure it's too small for her now and it's practically brand new. I loved my bike when I was a kid, I'm not sure why she doesn't.

That bridge is a giant thick thing - wow! I like little diners, too :)

What a cute bike!

I love those old bridges. Does your city have a good bike path? Indianapolis has an extensive rails to trails project that would make loads of fun for the dd and the new bike.

I am embarrassed to admit that my daughter will be 7 this Sept. and she still has the training wheels on her bike. Bad mamma! I really need to take her to the school parking lot and teach her. Summer is almost over! Ack!

I'm loving both the bridges!

The new bike is awesome. May she have many wonderful adventures on it.

@Amy, yes we actually have some really nice bike paths! Hmmm....I sense a future SIMC topic! ;)
