September: Point Judith, Rhode Island


Shhhh . . . mini-subs are manufactured there

The photo is a northerly view of Point View Marina, on Salt Pond in R.I., either from their dock or Point Judith Marina’s dock. I spent many years behind the middle building, which was the winch room for the railway, doing repairs and building lobsterboats. This was back when it was Kenny Gallup’s Salt Pond Marine Railway.

A good friend of mine used to live above what was the machine shop and paint locker in the building on the right. Last I knew, the Navy was building “secret” mini subs in the far left building – no joke!
