Block Island

So this past weekend we took a little weekend get-away trip to Block Island, Rhode Island.  It was AMAZING!

It’s a tiny island off of the coast of Rhode Island and there isn’t a lot to do there but there is plenty to do. (if that makes sense)

We stayed at The Atlantic Inn, a quaint bed and breakfast with small bathrooms and ridiculous floral patterns every where.  It was so cute, at the time it was a bit frustrating, but looking back it all seems so comfortable.

The first night on Block Island we ate at The Poor Peoples Pub.  The food was RIDICULOUS!  Some of it was so good that I’m actually craving some right now.  Some of it I could happily live without for the rest of my life.

We rented mopeds (highly recommended) and went to South Lighthouse, Mohegan Bluffs, Froozie’s (veggie/vegan), North Lighthouse, The National (for drinks), Mohegan Cafe/Bar (I think this is what it’s called) for Lunch, and then The Atlantic Inn for an amazing fancy meal.

After we left Block Island, we drove to Newport to take a tour of the vineyards and we tasted about 20 different wines.  The search for food was ridiculous but we made do.  We walked on the beach even though it smelt like “rotten eggs/fart/death” and then we attempted to head home.  We drove through a neighborhood and saw amazing houses and then Farook spotted a cliff walk — we pulled over.  After a few minutes on the Cliff Walk we attempted to head home again and we took a few wrong turns and found ourselves surrounded by old houses.  Houses that were built in the 1700-1800’s!  Saw a cute antique shop so we pulled over again.  None of us bought anything but it was nice.  After that, we finally headed home.

It was an amazing weekend.  Lots of memories, lots of fun, and great friends.

    Funny this is on my list of places to visit when Dario comes up to RI while I’m in law school. Love the photos, can’t wait to visit 🙂

    • Yes, definitely before it gets cold. I would imagine it’s pretty freaky there when no one is around! 🙂
