Winter Hiking Roger Williams Park

Winter Hiking Roger Williams Park

I’m a native Rhode Islander, and like every native Rhode Islander, I have fond memories of Roger Williams Park (there’s a zoo, a carousel, and all kinds of fun playground stuff). There’s also a huge amount of park in Roger Williams Park, and most people drive around it for several minutes before reaching their destination. I’d never really walked around the park before, so about ten days ago (before all this snow) I decided to go for a hike out there.

This morning I woke up at 5:30am. It’s Saturday and my day off. I’ll admit I was more than a little miffed at the fact that I woke up so early on the first day in a month that I’ve been able to sleep in. I mean, sure, it’s great that I’ve been getting enough sleep lately that I could get out of bed at 5:30, but that wasn’t really what I wanted to do on my day off.

Moving to the City

A few weeks ago, I talked a lot about the community I live in and how much I value it. Some of you might agree and some of you might not. I also talked last week about moving to Glasgow. And now it’s time to address one of the elephants in the room (there’s quite the herd in here, but we’ll start with this one): I prefer small towns, and yet I’m about to move out to a fairly large city.

August has been hectic, to say the least, which is why I’ve had very few actual postings.  Granted, I’ve put up a lot of new photo galleries, but those are easier in a way than actually writing.  Most of the…

Block Island 2012 Photo Gallery

Here are all the photos from our trip!!!  Block Island is beautiful, as always.  Fun fact?  All these photos were taken with an iPhone 4s.  I must say, I’m impressed.  Now if only I could upload an audio file with…

Sail Away

Sail Away

In the ’90s, there was a commercial for anyone in Southern New England (especially Rhode Island) enticing us to “Sail away on the Block Island ferry.” I’ve only gone twice now, but every time I do, the song pops into…

Raspberries in Summertime

A gentle breeze made its way up the coast of southern New England, through Narraganset Bay and across the Jamestown Bridge. It seemed to be searching for something as it blew up a small hill in Saunderstown and rounded the…
