Rhode Island: Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

18 Nov

Stone fence in Rhode IslandForty-eight miles north to south and 37 miles east to west. How many of those miles are marked by stone fences? Magnificent stone fences. Some with ferns, most with moss. Some round, some like sheets of granite with pointed edges. All a feat.

And despite this presence of stone, Rhode Island is the Ocean State. Looking at a map that makes sense, but in the midst and mist of things, I would give it another name. But yes, I did see the ocean, too.

Do you think state names express their experience?
