So we went to see the railroad bridge which opened officially last weekend as a pedestrian bridge connecting Salem and West Salem. It’s the old bridge with new concrete decking,
built in 1912,
but with new railings and little “bump-outs” where you can stand and take a view or a photo.
Then we went by the new Salem Cinema to check on the film festival, still going on,
and then we got the good looking coffee.
Downtown was looking very wonderful and the whole place seemed kind of nice and lively. At last. 40 years after moving here.
