Lens-Artists Challenge #89: A River Runs Through It
…photos of rivers running down mountains, through valleys, along plains where you are or you have traveled, and we also love to read your stories…
A river runs through the small town of Exeter, NH.
Known commonly as The Exeter River, it is technically a tidal river originating in the town of Chester – located west of Exeter.
The Exeter River begins in the town of Chester and flows east and north to Exeter where it becomes tidal and changes name to the Squamscott River, before emptying into Great Bay. (DES.NH)
As it enters Exeter, it flows under a bridge behind the main street, lined with local businesses.
Winding its way past downtown, the river picks up a bit of speed.
Next it flows by a public park where visitors walk or jog along the perimeter.
And often pause to rest…on one of the numerous memorial benches donated by local citizens.
A peaceful place of refuge.
