Summer Vacation: Block Island

We’re back in Toronto after spending nearly 3 weeks in Rhode Island & Maine.  We had a great time visiting & spending time with friends & family but it’s nice to be home.  Trying to get caught up before things get really busy…

Pete, London, & I left Toronto on Friday evening (the 26th) & although we planned on stopping for the night we drove straight through to Rhode Island – well we stopped in Buffalo for dinner.  London cranked almost the whole way to the border but after dinner she went to sleep & slept right to Nani & Poppi’s.

Pete & I had plans to go to Block Island on Sunday but the weather was terrible (the ferry was even cancelled) so he changed our reservation to Monday night which worked out fabulously.  We got to Block Island early in the afternoon on Monday, checked into the hotel (we stayed at the National), then rented mopeds & cruised around the island for the afternoon.  It was quite fun.  IMG_3605_Fotor_CollageI I checked out all the little shops on the “strip” & we had dinner at the National (a lovely 3 course meal was included with our room).  Tuesday morning we went to the beach for a little bit & then caught the ferry back.  IMG_3605_Fotor_Collage 1

We had a really nice time.  London obviously had a great time with Nani & Poppi & her cousin Liam.
