Water Fire in Providence RI

A group of us took the Amtrak train to and from Providence RI from New Haven. Train was a nice way to travel. Went to see waterfire Very impressive. Very nice city. River fronts are very people friendly. Lots of college kids. Need to go in and explore Providence again. Video clip below gives you an idea of the sites and sounds. What you can not appreciate is the feeling of warmth from the fires while standing on the river banks and the fragrence of the buring wood.
