I took my parents to Block Island yesterday. It was fun to be a tourist on the island that I've come to know so well. We walked along the southern beaches.
And admired the ocean view from the bluffs:
It was the most gorgeous, spring day on the island. The sun was shining, the ocean was calm and the breezes were minimal.
I'm so glad that for their first trip to the island, my parents got to see Block Island at it's best.
Later, we bought a lunch and "hiked" to the North Light to enjoy a picnic with the seagulls:
And then we took a driving tour of the island before stopping back at the house for sunshine filled rest.
We had to catch the 3 o'clock ferry home, so it wasn't the longest trip, but it was a still a good one. I can't wait to be back on the island - I'm ready for a long, hot, summer vacation.
