Spur of the moment, my husband and I sailed on the ferry to Block Island, a small pork-chop shaped oasis located between Rhode Island and Long Island. We stayed at a quaint old country inn called the 1661, the year BI was discovered. Block Island holds special meaning for our family because we've been vacationing there since 1986. Our kids know it well, and since we currently live in Rhode Island, we've visited the Block numerous times recently.
On the theory that a picture is worth a thousand words (which I don't incidentally always hold to be true), I post a passel of them here for your perusal.
