Rhode Island Day Trip - Zoo & Lunch
Already another week gone by. A week ago today we were at the B&B in NJ and it just went by way too fast. :( Had a great rest of our stay though. Sunday night we had seafood for dinner at the Union Landing Restaurant in Brielle. Yummy.
Then Monday we checked out a Wildlife Preserve near Atlantic City. Absolutely loved it. They had a 8 mile wildlife drive and also some trails plus a boardwalk through a marshy area. All very cool. Saw a bunch of birds, a turtle, raccoon, baby geese and more. Afterwards we drove to Cape May for lunch and then back to the B&B. Dinner that night was more seafood at Wharfside Restaurant. They had a really nice outdoor area and our table was right by the water. Made me want to stay.
Tuesday we slept in a bit, then checked out and headed home. Stopped in Philly on the way and had lunch at the Hard Rock. Also discovered that the Hard Rock is right across the street from the Loews Hotel which is where I will be staying in June when I go to Philly for the Diana Gabaldon book signing event. So that will be convenient.
Rest of the week was back to work. Busy as usual. Worked Saturday. Today, Sunday, we decided to take a day trip out to Rhode Island. Drove to Providence to go to the zoo there which was really nice. Pretty big and lots of neat animals. They had a pretty big Australia area which made me happy since I love wallabies, kangaroos and koalas. After the zoo we met up with our friend Tim. Had lunch at the Union Station Brewery in downtown Providence. He recently moved out to Rhode Island with his girlfriend so it was fun to see him and catch up.
