September 14, 2009... Block Island, RI
Block Island is beautiful and the weather has been summery. We started the day with a kayak trek around the Great Salt Pond, which is not as big as we thought, and has clear water and provides a fairly protected area. In the afternoon we walked to town at the Old Harbor, then along the beach on the east side of island, and onward to the southern end where the Block Island Southeast Light is located on the Mohegan bluffs. Along the way we saw beautiful old Victorian hotels, houses with incredible views, and gorgeous scenery everywhere we looked. We returned (exhausted) to the boat to barbeque.
