While Susie was teaching class a week ago today, Saturday I scooted over to downtown Providence to catch the annual art sale put on by Rhode Island School of Design. This was my first time. . . and probably my last.
A couple of blocks of Benefit Street was closed off for the event and there were indeed lots of folks out and about -- but nothing terribly exciting about the art except for the prices. . .
On Sunday, we spent a warm, sunny hour or so walking along the East Bay Bike Path in East Providence, a wonderful place to getaway just five minutes from our home. Colors were just starting to turn. . .
Low tide often reveals some of the less savory aspects of the East Bay Bike path and points us to the past when much of this area was rife with industrial:

From Scituate we continued westward heading into northeastern Connecticut before turning north in to Massachusetts and then back east in the direction of Douglas. We ended a wonderful day at Dick and Dorothy's house where we feasted on scrumptious beef stew with fresh-picked green beans right out of Dor's garden. A great way to spend a holiday weekend!
