Rough Point
Narragansett Bay

Rough Point, on the cliffwalk.  What can one say about it without having done any research whatsoever?  How about this: it doesn't look so rough to me.  Spin around and look at that mansion on the hill.  The person who built that mansion had a slightly warped sense of just how rough this point really was.  Money will do that.  Someone probably stubbed their toe while retrieving a croquet ball and said to themselves "now this is a rather rough spot, what? I'd better get back to my velvety green grass."  In my mind, that's the story of this not so rough point.  It is a pretty photograph however, no matter how inapt the name of its location.

More About 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.
