Herreshoff Dock
Narragansett Bay

This is the view from the dock belonging to the Herreshoff Museum in Bristol, RI.  The Herreshoff name is legendary still in the sailing world.  The Herreshoff brothers designed and built sailing and motor yachts around the turn of the last century.  The built an inordinate number of America's Cup winners and their distinctive designs still turn heads to this day among lovers of sailboats.  They also once held the speed record for motor yachts.  The story goes, they showed up in Manhattan to duel the current record holder of the time, a boat which delivered mail to Albany.  They blew their whistle, circled the mail boat several times and took off for Albany, arriving hours before the competition.  The press was there to meet them.  Now that's pr genius.

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.
