Sommerville Flea

We recently saw that there is a flea market on Sundays in Davis Square in Sommerville Massachusetts. This happens to be near one of our bicycling routes, so we decided to take a ride over there. For all of the advertising, we thought that it would be a bit bigger, but as you can see, they had some interesting items for sale.

Blynman Bridge

Boats wanting to enter the marina on the Anisquam River in Glouster Massachusetts, must pass through the Blynman Canal. This requires passing under the Blymna Bridge on Western Avenue.
