Fort Cove, below Fort Wetherill in Jamestown, RI, has served as a base for marine activities from mine-laying to America's Cup racing.  It is currently the headquarters of the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management's Division of Fish and Wildlife.  The adjacent East Passage of Narragansett Bay is one of the major shipping channels of New England.  A huge cruise ship is visible in Newport Harbor on the other side of the channel.

This panorama was taken in Narragansett Bay

This is an overview of Narragansett Bay

Narragansett Bay dominates the geography of the tiny state of Rhode Island, extending 25 miles northwards and inland from the Atlantic Ocean right into the heart of its major cities.  It is fed by the watersheds of 3 major rivers: the Blackstone, the Taunton and the Pawtuxet.  Narragansett Bay defines the region's culture, its history, sense of place and quality of life.  The cities of Providence, Newport, Fall River, Warwick and Newport all owe their start to the bay and the opportunities it provided for water power, commercial growth and transportation. 

Once badly polluted, the Narragansett Bay has made a tremendous comeback in the last 3 decades as communities all around the bay have revitalized their connection to the bay and taken steps to curb human impact.  Aerial Vr plans a series of panoramas intended to capture the area's unique natural beauty, both from its surface and from the air as well as the vitality and uniqueness of its communities.
