Rhode Island Wander: Block Island

Summer is such a fun time of year, especially when you have a good friend who has a beach house in Rhode Island and she invites 11 of her closest girlfriends to stay with her.  My friend Lorraine, who is a gracious hostess did just that.  We arrived Monday, hung out at the beach all afternoon then ate dinner and socialized in the evening.

On Tuesday morning we were all up bright and early and headed over to Point Judith to take the ferry over to Block Island.  Some of us brought our own bikes and some of us rented bikes.  We rode to Mohegan Bluffs Beach.  The parking area where we left the bikes was high above the beach, and we descended 142 steps to get to the sand, rocks and crashing waves. 

By 1:00 PM we were all hungry, and ascended the 142 steps back to our bikes, and rode to Spring House Hotel's veranda for lunch overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.  When we arrived an ice cold beer was well deserved and we drank it enjoying our breath taking surroundings.  I had a delicious Lobster Cobb Salad.  After lunch we rode the rest of the way back to town and took the 3:30 PM ferry back to Point Judith and returned to Lorraine's house.

Some of the gals stayed one more night.  I decided to head home - my spirit full from the beach, fun and good company, and in dire need of a good night's sleep.
