I was inspired to visit Narragansett by a friend who hosts the website Kid Friendly Things To Do. And basically, we just did everything she suggested...because, why not? The first thing we did was visit Point Judith Lighthouse.
The beach was made of rocks, with stacks of rocks scattered here and there.
I think we had been there about 30 minutes when one of them asked, "Is this the beach we were going to go to?"
"No," I replied, "this is the lighthouse."
"Lighthouse? What lighthouse? Oh..."
Lunch followed the lighthouse. I had already planned where we were going to dine using MapQuest.
Turned out to be a fairly good choice, although we were the only customers. I hope they do better ordinarily so we can return one day to find them still in business.
The beach was our next stop. There was a public beach across the street from Amalfi, but it was quite crowded. My friend's website had given away a great secret about a small secluded beach that belongs to the University of RI. We found it, and it was perfect.
It was a little bit chilly, but it wasn't long until the kids were warming up with all of their running around
It wasn't long until they were romping around in the waves.
It was a gorgeous day,
and I loved spending it with my kids. I think they felt the same way...
If not, I know they were definitely excited that we ended our adventure at Nana's Candy Bar where each kid got to fill a bucket with candy!
