Do you know that wonderful feature on your browser's tool bar that refreshes whatever page your are working on? Well, I feel like Boyd and I did that a couple of weeks ago with our relationship. Thanks to our very kind, generous friends, we were able to escape to Block Island for a little getaway without our kids.
Monica, one of our kind, generous friends, recommended this little island off the coast of Long Island. You can get there by a ferry from Long Island and since we were dropping off our kids on Long Island we thought it would work out perfectly, and it did.
We were there from a Friday morning until a Saturday night. The trip involved a lot of relaxing, like taking naps, sitting on the beach and reading books. We stayed at The Blue Dory Inn. Yes, the flowers were a bit much. But, the sunlight is what we love about this room. Since our apartment gets very little sunlight, we loved the sun drenched room.
The island is known for it's biking and so we brought our bikes on the ferry and we used the bikes the whole time. We didn't set foot in a car, not even from the ferry. We biked our stuff to the hotel. I have to say that it was a lot of fun, but there were a lot of hills and it killed me! We would bike and then get out and hike to the different beaches or view points.
