We had an nice, short, uneventful drive to Narragansett Thursday. It was only 75 miles and we got here a little before 1:00 pm and was checked in and set up by 1:30. We have 30 amps, water, Verizon cell and Internet, and satellite sighting was quick and easy.
Friday, we made a trip back into CT to tour the Mystic Seaport area. This is an old area of CT and very quaint. We were able to see the Mystic Pizza place. This is the place that was the basis for the title of Julia Roberts' first movie in 1988. We didn't eat there because we had been eating pizza for three days after ordering one in Haddam and it turned out being about twice as large as we expected. Good thing it was great pizza!!
Anyhow, I figured it was about time for Doris to get her first lobster of the trip so we went to one of the most famous places for lobster in the state of CT, Abbott's Lobster in the Rough located in Noank, CT just below Mystic. It just happened that Friday was their first day open this season. Doris had their famous Lobster Roll and I had their Abbotizer Special ( you can check the menu picture to see what it was) since I would rather eat most anything than lobster. Doris said it was really good and my meal wasn't bad either!
Saturday we woke up to rain, rain, rain so we wound up staying in all day. I did run down to the local Red Box and get a couple of movies for us to watch. We otherwise just "vegged" out and caught up on some things we had left to do, mainly finding a place in VT to spend Memorial Day so we could get reservations before they filled up. We found a place right outside Springfield, VT that will serve nicely for us to tour that area of VT.
Sunday we took off for Newport, RI. On the way over there we stopped at Jamestown to see an Jamestown Windmill
old windmill. It was built in 1787 and more can be found out about it at the indicated link. We did find it but it was closed as an attraction and they had taken the wings off. We then went to Newport (via a $4 toll bridge - they do love their tolls up here) to walk part of the Cliff Walk
on the East shore Newport. Click on the link to learn much more about this scenic walk. We walked for about 1.5 miles and thoroughly enjoyed both the view of the ocean on one side as well as the mansions on the other side.
Tomorrow, we head for Massachusetts where we have reservations for a State Park just above Cape Cod.
