A VERY LONG OVERDUE SUMMER WRAP UP

Yes, I know how crazy that sounds on October 25th, but I had some leftover pics I needed to get out of my camera and phone.  The first one is a dock at New Harbor, on the Great Salt Pond on Block Island.  The one below it is the view from the outside bar at the Surf Hotel on Block.  The Surf was empty and decaying for several years, up for sale with no takers.  The owners chose to take  it off the market and refurbish.  The view of Crescent Beach from the back deck is, in my opinion, one of the best on the entire island.  No small thing on an island loaded with stunning views.

When I look at this picture of the bar at The National Hotel on Block, I hear Kate Smith singing God Bless America

Coming home on the ferry the first week of September, there was no denying that summer was over:

A year or two ago I went through a phase of filtering all my photos.  I assured you all that it was behind me, but I’m like a junkie, I can’t stop.   The first two are a field in Tiverton, right down the road from Tiverton Four Corners:

Another Rockin’ Rhode Island Place….

Galilee!   It’s really unique, a teeny mixed bag of a place.   It’s a fishing village and a tourist trap, with our smallest state beach and a ferry boat landing (I can’t tell you where the boat goes, I promised in my last post).    Full disclosure:  when I commented to a friend that I love this village, she replied “it makes me want to jump out of my skin”.   You just never know.

I took this picture on my phone at dusk the last time I was there.  For you Stephen King fans, it was past dusk, it was actually the gloaming.  If you visit, take a pass on George’s…..hit up Champlin’s for some fried seafood and a margarita.
