Ready to Dive In?

Along the Trestle Trail, Coventry, RI

Along the Trestle Trail, Coventry, RI

I’ve most often been the one who waits for others to jump into any activity before I take the plunge. More comfortable being a spectator than risk looking silly. But there came a time in high school when I grew bored with this default behavior. Here’s a guest post I wrote about what happened next, for my Association of Personal Historians colleague, Sarah White, for her blog. I was reminded of this story while traveling on the Coventry Rhode Island Trestle Trail.
