Edges and Ledges – #CFFC
After a long post from the bar, a couple hundred comments, and the official start of the Thursday Doors Writing Challenge, I think it’s time to sit back and look at some pictures. Fortunately, Cee has given us a nice prompt this week for her Fun Foto Challenge.
“This week our topic is celebrating Edges and Ledges. Anything with an edge, show it off. Any type of ledge or mantle show it off. Just make sure the edge or ledge is clearly visible in your photo. Have fun.”
I poked around, looking for the kinds of things that have edges and ledges. I’ve put them in the gallery, and I hope you enjoy them.
Note: The Thursday Doors Writing Challenge runs the entire month of May. Visit the TDWC page, choose a door image that inspires you. There are 21 doors to choose from, and you can write anything you like.
Later in the day, they had to move the crane closer to my desk.

Crossing over the Windsor Locks Canal.
The canals run north to south for about a mile.

That’s the Windsor Locks Canal as it weaves its way through our town.
This is why I always liked stopping at Great River Park.
As we approached the railroad trestle, you have a good view of the canal and the river. It’s ironic that the railroad needed a separate bridge to cross the canal it was putting out of business.
This bridge is at the north end of Great River Park.

Lots of rivers around New England were built to power mills. Leaving us with lots of dams and waterfalls.
These guys are just so cute.
This door opens to the balcony that rings the lighthouse, about 8′ below the lamp.

When you can’t avoid a knot, it’s best to make sure it’s not exposed at the edge.
Terns, waiting at the edge
Looks like the turtles are willing to share the log with the geese.
