Everyone needs to take a few days off to enjoy family and friends. We were able to do so in Jamestown, Rhode Island this summer, a beautiful island only an hour or so away from any of Connecticuts towns surrounding Mansfield, CT. Connected by a bridge to Newport RI, you can enjoy the quiet village and harbor with charming shops and restaurants, or go to Newport for a day or evening to explore the mansions, beaches, fabulous restaurants and endless shopping.
Watching the yawl sailing by as the fog began to roll in reminds me of the coast of Maine and the many summers spent there as a child at my grandparents home. With the fog horn sounding in the distance it seems like the world slows down and there is no choice but to relax and slow down with it – Newport can wait, maybe we’ll go in for dinner tonight……..
