A few weeks ago John and I took a much needed break.
Just the two of us.
That doesn't happen very often.
We needed some quiet time.
We needed some "just us" time.
We needed time to just walk and not talk very much.
To feel the sun on our backs and the wind against our faces.
We ventured out to Watson's Farm on the beautiful island of Jamestown, RI.
What I loved about Watson Farms was that you went from pastures, big stone walls, and gigantic trees......right to the bay.....
and the bridge.
...to a shore filled with shells and and the skeletons.....
...and beautiful rocks swept smooth from the sea.
There were quite a few boats on the bay that day.
We walked hand and hand down the beach.
I know if my kids are reading this, they just stuck their finger down their throats and made a "blech" sound.
We even saw a heart shaped mussel. Maybe it didn't look heart shaped when it was closed...
...but when you pushed open the shell.......a heart.
We walked back on a path lined with a towering trees.....
....we met a few horses....
...and a rooster, who wanted no part in having his picture taken.
We also met two very friendly farm cats....
...who happily posed for pictures.
We wandered around a bit while I snapped some pictures....
Great photos! I think my favorite is of the horse's muzzle. I've always wanted to go to Rhode Island.
Absolutely perfect day. Yes, you are lucky.
I really like your camera view.
You are a lucky girl! I feel the peace and ('blech') romance of this place through your photos. It's gorgeous country up there. Of course, I've never been up to RI before, but it makes me realize how badly Rich and I need to run away, too. And of course, considering the stress you were going through, I can imagine this is just what the doc ordered. Good for you both.
This is really a beautiful post. Just loved it! And, of course, your photos are bright, colorful, and exceptional. So lovely. What a nice way you documented that special day.
I am from RI and that farm is really BEAUTIFUL! Watson Farm is my favorite farm in Jamestown and I go there about every Friday....gorgeous. Also, Beavertail Lighthouse has a beautiful view of the ocean.
Watson Farm is a beautiful place. It's been too long since I've been for a long walk there! RI has a lot of unexpected gems like that.
