dunes and sand along the way


part of natural seashore







welcome to P town


lots of artists exhibiting their trade along the shops near the water, on commercial street.






anchor near road














store to buy tickets for a whale tour






bubble machine










tons of people just wandering around,


tons of shops to choose from






this has a lot


of very old army stuff

gas marks, torpedos, etc









rope for most uses









this is one of the shops where the artists are at work showing you

want their trade in. it's 3 floors now

and goes right out to the water, nice deck







funny lobster hat with claws












a toy store






on our way home we saw a sign for cape cod light just a short trip so we went and it pointed us to this: highland light. so we're not sure which light house it is yet


















the light house in question

jaunt around ct

got a bunch of hats done while in the car

stopped at fenton ruby state park and wildlife preserve


















beginning of the trail, we did register. there were at least 15 markers




very hot and severe walking, lots of roots and mud and rocks to climb over



next was:
wickham park and gardens (aviary and other formal gardens)




we didn't see everything but there are at least 10 formal gardens, all kinds of birds, all kinds of playgrounds for the kids, tennis courts, volleyball courts, softball fields and TONS of walking trails in very pristen atmosphere, places for weddings (they were setting up a tent and we wondered if it's where chelsea clinton will be married LOL



lots of statues













next was:
elizabeth park and gardens

rose gardens, 4 of these arches lead to the center covered home. there are very laid back gardens, all kinds of combinations of flowers. very pleasing to the eyes






snack bar we got a hotdog from and 3 mins later we went back to get an ice cream before leaving and they closed at 439pm












annuals, rock gardens also





dinosaur state park was closed at 430pm also, what gives with this LOL


gillette castle = this was closed by 5pm when we were there






















didn't make it to devils hopyard either, next time

strange things along the way


a swing bridge that actually swings to the side to let boats go under the bridge.












if you look at this just right it looks like a small person scrunched up with his hands folded in front o f him behind the tree










i95 in RI, they actually have this divided rather than grass median

jaunt around the state

started out by




going to roger williams memorial park in providence.





lots of people there with drawing








pencils and easels set up.






headed over to roger williams park













rose gardens




paddle boat area.















saw merry go round



very nice scenery







strange branch at the park.










headed to iggys, seen so much about this place on tv we thought we'd try


saw this cow at dockside seafood. there was no dock, no water and they may sell seafood LOL


iggys was mobbed, typical i'm told.

the doughboys are kinda like portuguese fired dough but a bit sweeter. we selected the confectioners sugar to roll ours into.

i only wanted to sample the white chowder and have a clamcake. well i saw they had lobster rolls so i got a dinner of that (to compare it to 6 other places i've tried in the past week(.

we had enough for our dinner LOL


beavertail lighthouse in jamestown, RI

























got a lot of knitting done in the car.
