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.
