24 hours on Blissful Block Island Equals a Week Anywhere Else

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.

You look very dapper in your orange hat and hot pink hoodie, I must say. 1661 looks like a wonderful place to stay.

You know how jealous I am. Been there once and fell in love... I'm soooooo glad you got to go. I look at going there as a way to garner strength for the times to come.

Good luck girl, I'm in your corner (think Burgess Meredith only younger, and a girl and prettier!)lol

Great photos and glad you had a wonderful respite. Dori, the kids and I are at the beach doing the same. Dori has smiled four days straight, just like you did.
