Visited the favorite daughter and Rhode Island.
She lives and works there and loves it.
Oh, and is looking to purchase a home there.
For the record,
a twelve hour drive to visit your daughter
is way too long.
What's up with
raising your children to be
strong, smart, and independent,
and then they go and follow through???!!! :)Oh, well.
We did have a great visit.
Last time we were there,
Sweetie was on crutches, so we couldn't do a whole lot.
This time, we walked EVERYWHERE we could!
It sure is a beautiful place.
Here's a pic of "her" beach:
|Lovin' all the tumbled rocks...|
And we ate it all, of course. Then,
she took us to a popular bakery...
check out these donuts:
|Allie's (I think in the North Kingston area) |
Check out the size compared to the cupcakes!!!
No, we did not have one of those giants,
though Sweetie was tempted :)
After daughter headed back to work,
we took off to "tour" the north east countryside
and found this place to visit in Lowell, Massachusetts:
The New England Quilt Museum!!!I spent just a little time here...
though no pics were allowed,
I did, just maybe,
drool over a few of the antique quilts.
They also have a great library and thousands of reference books.
I could've stayed much longer than I did!
This is the back of the NEQ Museum:
Also, they were getting ready for the Lowell Quilt Festival the next weekend,
so the gals at the NEQ Museum were making pole wrap quilts
and the surrounding few block area had "quilted" light posts! Cool, huh?
While I was drooling in the Museum,
Sweetie went to the Court House and walked around, unguided:
|Three floors, double stairs, marble treads, |
wooden hand-rails, cast iron banisters
|the court room|
We closed the place out at 5 p.m.
and headed further North and West.
More to come tomorrow!
