A perfect summer evening in Narragansett

It was a gorgeous Saturday afternoon,with a  perfect coolness to the air even in the warmth of the sun, as we plunged through downtown Newport from Sachuest Wildlife Refuge, heading west. Traffic was light, though, and we soon found ourselves crossing the bridge to Jamestown Island,and then  zipping across another bridge (named Verranzano rather like it's larger twin in New York) and at last south on Route 1 to Narragansett.

We soon pulled into Barbara's driveway, unloaded our cooler and kicked off a wondrful evening of musings about life with Andrea, Barbara, "cousin" Matt and his girlfriend Maggie, eating scrumptious shrimp and salad (finished off with a Susie dessert), all while sitting outside taking in the glories of a late spring evening at the beach.

Wish you could have been there.
