It's been raining for weeks and we've been working like crazy people for weeks and stress is relentless ... but once Chris and I ended up in Block Island, it finally felt like summer. And we finally relaxed.
Block Island is only about twelve miles from the RI mainland, but it feels like it's miles away and also like a proper vacation. The coastline is beautiful! We spent the afternoon on the beach, soaking up (too much) of the sun and hanging with our friends.
Camera always at the ready, I - again - snapped too many pictures of flowers. (Instead of people. Not sure why that keeps happening. Maybe because flowers sit still for five minutes?) But thankfully, the flora is reasonable photogenic.
An evening in Newport with my husband made for some very pretty photos
from the famous Newport Cliff Walk
and dinner at Sardella's
. Our visit home was too damn short, but worth it! Rhode Island has it's share of weird areas and quirky bits, but there are enough hidden treasures to amaze even a local like me.
Already looking forward to next time. :)
