Once reaching the coast, continuing to enjoy the Dog On It CD's all the way (growing quite fond of Chet with each succeeding chapter), I turned north onto I95, past Mystic, CT where I stopped at a Scenic Overlook.
Then soon after was in RI, taking it easy and enjoying the ride on 138 which goes through the heart of RI, past URI, stone walls, fields of rocks and cows, windy old roads and several garden shops. I finally stopped at The Farmer's Daughter where I could have blown quite a bit, but since my car is packed to bursting already, I just mosied into every greenhouse think marking what I want to stop and buy on my way home next week (uh oh).
Then across the bay to Jamestown and then the Newport Bridgewhich heralds almost each and every visit to my sister. She has lived on Aquidneck Island in Portsmouth and Newport for more years than I can remember, and before that on Jamestown.
Now I get to enjoy her fishies, her cat and her laid back hospitality. Respite and a bit of vacation before the Fiber Fair on Saturday. I'll be taking some photos of Newport to show you in the next few days.
