There is a bridge in Edgartown Massachusetts that is called the American Legion Memorial Bridge (some locals call it the “Big Bridge”). Along this bridge runs a part of Seaview Avenue, which connects Edgartown with the town of Oak Bluffs. Coincidentally, the bridge also divides the Atlantic Ocean from Sengekontacket Pond.
Does the bridge look somewhat familiar?
It should. How about now?
It is also called the "Jaws Bridge," because it was made famous in Steven Spielberg's 1975 blockbuster "Jaws." It was at this Amity Island bridge (in the film) that the famous shark scene with Michael in the pond was filmed.
Despite its nickname, the bridge is a small one, just a few car-lengths in total, and it has been refurbished in recent years. The stone quay that Roy Scheider ran on during the Jaws attack 'in the pond' is still there and runs perpendicular to the bridge. The beach on the ocean side, called Joseph Sylvia State Beach, was where the rest of the scene was filmed.

Due to the rise in coronavirus cases in Central Ohio, the January post meeting has been tentatively canceled. The next regularly scheduled post meeting (2nd Thursday each month) will be determined as soon as control of the virus has been determined.
Until then, all coronavirus implementations for the State of Ohio are in effect.
As a nation, we will get through this successfully.
