California one week…Rhode Island a few weeks later!

When I was in grad school, a fellow poet wrote a lot of amazing poetry about  a place called Block Island. I knew I wanted to visit someday, so last December, when we were trying to figure out where we wanted to travel this summer, I threw that idea into the ring.  We wanted to go somewhere we could drive so that we could take the dogs, and at about 16.5 hours away, Block Island was just within our driving limit. I mean, 17 hours in the car with two dogs and a three year-old– what a great start to vacation, right? 

In actuality, the drive up wasn’t that bad. We split it up into two days and stayed in a hotel in West Virginia the first night:


Although I will say, I was very glad to see the ferry boat when we finally arrived at Point Judith.  A short one hour ferry ride later:


…and we were there! We made it to our rental house just in time to catch a beautiful sunset:


 We spent today mostly just at the beach…in the morning, when we got up:




 …and in the afternoon as well:



 Our house is about a ten minute walk to this beach– which we had practically all to ourselves, both times! Loving how quiet and low-key Block Island is– just what we wanted!

Blog posts from our travels are always some of my favorite to look back on, so I’ll try to blog semi-regularly while we’re here.

    That’s your driving limit… with 2 dogs and a 3 year old? You’re crazy haha. My driving limit for me, myself, and I (with an adult passenger) is like ~10 hours. Honestly, I don’t really want to drive more than 3 hours at a time. I’m a wuss.

    Looks like a beautiful place though! Enjoy your trip πŸ™‚
