I’mÂ thankful coming up for air from under the choppy surface of Narrow River was never required, though stopping at theÂ top of a long hill on Block Island for gulp of the gas was necessary aÂ time or two. I’m pleased (and very surprised) I’ve spent a number ofÂ days mostly outdoors without sunburn, only one blister, and no moreÂ complaints of aches and pains than the usual.
I will have muchÂ to digest (not to mention a pile to sort through on my desk) after myÂ very memorable trip to NY, CT and RI, and have not many but a fewÂ pictures to process later today.
The kayaking and biking andÂ especially the consumption of seafood were all successfully achieved. ItÂ will take some time to readjust to the slower pace and land-only dietÂ of Goose Creek. Ocean State indeed. I shed a number of preconceptionsÂ about Rhode Island on this trip.
There are a lot of great placesÂ to live in this country. I’ve visited another one of them. About which,Â much more later when I’ve dug my way back to the day-to-day surface ofÂ life in the valley here.
