Rhode Island Lighthouses & more

CruiseSurvived the first full week back at work. And it definitely wasn't an enjoyable week. Especially Wednesday, Thursday and Friday seemed especially annoying. But luckily I was off Saturday and today so can't complain too much I suppose. 

Yesterday, Saturday, we decided to take advantage of the nice summer weather and took a day trip to Rhode Island. (about a 2 1/2 hour drive) Went on a 90 minute lighthouse tour/cruise that was really cool. The weather was absolutely perfect, just a few clouds in the sky, and with the breeze of the ocean/being on the water the temperature was just right. It was definitely a fun way to spend the day.

After the boat tour we drove to Narrangansett where we had a late lunch. The place we picked was the Coast Guard House, a really neat restaurant right on the water. Their property was severly damaged during Hurricane Sandy last October and they just reopened this past May. For the summer season they only have the outdoor decks open. The rest of the restaurant (indoor dining rooms with full menu) will reopen for the fall season. It was perfect for us though as we wanted to sit outside anyway. Was great to have some seafood (I had a crabcake sandwich, Mike a lobster roll and we both had lobster bisque) and some drinks overlooking the ocean. Can't wish for more. 

After we came back from Rhode Island we stopped at Two Steps to hang out with Sam and enjoy some more of the nice weather sitting outside in their new beergarden they now have on Friday and Saturday nights. 

Today we are taking it easy. Slept in really late and in a little bit we are off to see "The Internship" at the movies. Looks like a pretty funny movie. Not sure what we are doing yet afterwards. Might catch up with some of our recorded TiVo stuff. 

Mail Update: A letter is going out tomorrow to: Nina/WA.
