Fisherman's Memorial Park

Originally known as Fort Greene, an observation silo still stands to remind us of Rhode Islands participation in WWII, where it was heavily fortified and part of our coastal  defense. After being decommissioned the state began purchasing the land for use as a state park, renaming it Fisherman's Memorial to honor fisherman of Narragansett Bay.
Lovely shady spot with ocean breezes and great proximity to beaches and anything you'd like for a few days away. I got lost in the sounds of bird call and whispering winds while painting this.
