New Bedford, MA

I took a ride into the city across the river.  It’s one I do often and no matter how many times I do the same route, I find something different.  I stopped for ice cream at the business I owned back in the mid 80s.  Stopped and talked with the locked out United Steel Workers at their plant.  Rode the elevated bike way along Buzzards Bay, and looked around the originals Berkshire Hathaway complex that once employed twelve thousand textile workers. The complex is gradually being demolished saving as much of the valuable brick and lumber as possible, for resale.
