DAILY PROMPT: LOCALLY SPEAKING

This is about as local as I can get! All these were taken recently in Uxbridge in the Blackstone Valley. I wish I could add more, but this is enough for the servers to handle. Thank you prompters for giving me something to work with ๐Ÿ™‚ Always looking for an excuse to post pictures of our beautiful town.

    • We have more than 50 locally on the Blackstone River, more on tributaries. Each one is different, a work of art. I love photographing them! I feel incredibly lucky to have so many nearby.

    • Thank you. It is beautiful. We have a lots of two things: water (with appropriate dams and falls) and trees. And the critters that live amongst trees and on water. Oh, and old churches, cemeteries … and … and … churches. Cemeteries. Historic libraries (but no librarians). Churches. Trees. Water. Swans. Geese. Duckies. Coyotes. Hawks and eagles. Fishers. Skunk. Racoon. Bobcats. Rats. Mice. Chipmunks. Dawgz (4). Gerbils (3) (but not if the terriers get there first) ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh and VAST ACCUMULATIONS OF SNOW IN THE WINTER and I do mean VAST. Like neck deep. But I hope not too soon. Please not too soon! ๐Ÿ™‚
