Wrapping Up Another Great New England Summer

Wrapping Up Another Great New England Summer

Well, it’s been another busy, exciting, beautiful New England summer. I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been taking advantage of as many fun summer activities as I could in the area trying to get some sand and sun :) A few weeks ago, my grandmother and sister came to town for a visit and we started our time together off with an amazing seafood dinner in downtown Bristol right on the water.

Tip a Canoe and Bridgit too?

We’ll see how it goes!  I’m off on a camping and canoeing weekend in Maine and New Hampshire.  This is only my second year on this trip, but I can’t wait!  Picture it–sun, smooth river, canoes tied together so you don’t actually have to paddle, rope swings and tree limbs and grilling on the river banks.  It’s. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.  Add in some tunes thanks to a waterproof speaker system, and you’re all set.  The weather is supposed to be awesome too–sunny and 80s.

It’s going to be a great way to spend one of the last summer weekends before school starts again.  I can’t believe the summer went by so fast.  It’s all good.  The start of school means weeks of welcome.  I’ll write more on that when the time comes…for now…spark up the fire kids…we’re having s’mores!

Lots to do, gotta go!

TGIF

Ever notice how the short weeks seem to drag by? No worries…it’s finally Friday. Big plans this weekend–Newport (only 30 minutes on the bus) to check out my first mansion tour and maybe hit up the seafood festival in Charlestown. Dinner in Providence? Who knows what the weekend will bring–it’s supposed to be beautiful!

PS…Justin was talking about Eskimo King, but Del’s is for sure a Rhode Island institution. It’s like a soft, slushy lemonade with lemon zest pieces. Perfect for long summer days (and weeks). Woo Friday.

Lots to do. Gotta go…

Rockin’ Out

Rockin’ Out

Ok, so last weekend was Sound Sessions in Providence. I’d heard about it before–everyone says it’s the best week of the summer in Providence. Sound Sessions is basically a week-long, free concert in downtown Prov. I’m totally bummed that I didn’t get around to seeing more of the bands, but I DID go on Saturday night. It was AWESOME! The city closed all of Westminster Street downtown. We got there around 10–just in time to see the parade which included dancers from Bolivia, fire-eaters, a drum circle on the back of a truck and a marching band playing hip hop. There were stages set up in the streets with all different bands, different food stations and places to buy all different kinds of jewelery and t-shirts. It was well worth the trip to Providence, and I’m already looking forward to next year’s!
