A Quick Visit to Much-loved Rhode Island

Rhode Island is one of our favorite places. We were so happy to return after a Covid-induced hiatus and even more pleased to be able to celebrate a good friend’s special birthday. Today I am sharing a few snaps from this wonderful visit. The pics above and below are from the iconic, historic, New York Yacht Club.

I do believe I ate my weight in lobster, but somehow, never took a picture – I guess I was just that anxious to tear into the meals. RI oysters are my favs and I managed quite a few of those as well. And no trip to Narragansett and Newport is complete without visits to Flo’s Clam Shack, the Matunuck Oyster Bar, the historic Coast Guard House, or Belle’s Cafe in the Newport Shipyard.

Since part of this trip was a special birthday celebration, I spent some quality time with my friend Sarah helping set up for events. We had so much fun enhancing floral arrangements.

Nothing is lovelier than a sunny day on the Rhode Island coast.

We always make time to visit the charming URI campus in Kingston, my husband’s alma mater.

  6. Rhode Island is on our list to do with NY, NJ, and CT. Those are the only five eastern states we haven’t visited. Rhode Island looks absolutely gorgeous, and the food makes a trip even more enticing! I (Kellye) enjoyed your trip.
