Night time wanderings on Westminster Street, Providence.  I do love a pretty bar sign.

Last morning walk in Providence, Rhode Island as tomorrow morning I should be packing.  Only fitting that I farewell my swans.  I feel like we will always be connected in that we all survived the freeze.  #startthedaywithsomethingbeautiful

Sun is struggling to come out for one of my last mornings on the river.  Still beautiful though and the ducks were out in force.  #startthedaywithsomethingbeautiful

I could sit and read here all day.  One of my favourite nooks in one of my favourite places in Providence.  The Providence Athenaeum.

They seem a lot faster in the winter so it has been an almost impossible task to get a good squirrel photo.  But I caught this little jaywalker!

Just love the Capitol Building and if I can find an excuse to wander past it I end up there.  The dome of the State House is the fourth-largest self-supporting marble dome in the world. (After St Peter's, the Taj Mahal and the Minnesota State Capitol). One of the things I love most is that on top of the dome is a gold-covered bronze statue of the Independent Man, originally named "Hope". Another reminder that hope is everywhere.

I am a bit obsessed with the Capitol.  This time, at dusk.
