Cape Cod Canal, Bourne, Massachusetts, USA

The Cape Cod Canal path (shown here passing under the Sagamore Bridge in Bourne) is a great destination for exercise, whatever your favored method......

......whether biking......

.....roller blading......

....or walking,  the path beside the canal is an all-year delight.  Although on this day, upper 40's Fahrenheit temperature with a stiff breeze off the ocean - it is not exactly shorts weather, roller blader person notwithstanding. The path is clean, no litter, well maintained, scenic, flat, paved - frankly it's pretty perfect.

Was the design shape of the Toyota Camry based on the curve of the Sagamore Bridge? 

Now here's a job that probably only appeals to a few hardy folks - there are two regular sized men in the basket above  (see green arrow) doing bridge maintenance.   Bear in mind that air temp is in the 40's, the wind is blowing close to 20, the bridge is shaking from the vehicular traffic across it, and these two men are trying to work at the end of a long mechanical arm suspended over the water - impressive.
