Subject: Block Island
Hello Ziners. And a big welcome to our new members, Charlotte and Nick from Milford, MA. I noticed you mentioned you would like to visit Block Island, R.I. someday. I've just returned from a wonderful day trip to B.I. We took the ferry from Point Judith, R.I. but there's also a ferry from Newport, R.I. It's a short hour's trip and during the summer months several crossings. A car is not necessary as the island is so small that most visitors, walk, bike, or moped and there are plenty of rentals. We opted for a one hour taxi tour that we felt was very worthwhile and walked the rest of the time. I'm sure you'll enjoy the unspoiled beauty and lack of developement as we did. Think Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket 40 yrs. ago. If you decide to go and want some advice, feel free to email me privately. Rebbi Levin Providence, R.I.
