Almost Wordless Wednesday - More RI Love

I am finally beginning to accept the fact that summer is over.
Yes, I'm aware that the temperatures have been dropping and there is a definite chill to the air first thing in the morning and later in the day.
However, I continue to hold out hope for a small taste of Indian summer.

Since my Top 5 Tuesday list was devoted to reasons I love Rhode Island, I thought I'd use Wordless Wednesday as a way to highlight one of my favorite reasons I live here - the absolute beauty of our summers!


One of my favorite views on the way to the beach: the Jamestown Bridge

A home I adore at one end of our beach (which without my fabulous new camera, I'd never be able to capture in such amazing detail!). Oh, to roll out of bed and onto the beach!

Cannot stand seagulls (I actually believe they are rats with wings) but somehow I find amazing beauty in this photo DH captured

The gorgeous view at the opposite end of the beach - this summer we enjoyed many family "treasure walks" down to these rocks, collecting quahog shells, stones, and anything else the Mad Hatter deemed worthy of trekking home with us (we even found a Starfish AKA sea star that we convinced her to put back into the ocean, as it was still alive)
Summer may be fading fast over, but our memories of this summer will surely be treasured for many months to come! They'll also get us through the feet of snow we're sure to endure in the long New England winter!

Wow...thanks for sharing Rach! Those photos are beautiful. I have never been to RI, but I can't wait to go someday! Do you have lighthouses near you?

You have managed to take my breath away.

I want to move there.

ASAP.

Great post Rach! I love the summer here, but the Fall and Winter can be fun too. We should get together and take the girls pumpkin picking one day!

I've only been to RI once, but it is breathtaking. We did the cliffwalk thing with all the mansions and went to this cute little topiary garden. I just loved it!

Those are beautiful pictures of RI - If I saw that side of RI more often I think I'd like it better. Usually all I get to see is crazy Providence traffic...
