Whether you ferry out of Point Judith or Newport there are lots of places to stay and things to see in the area ... of course you could spend a week in Newport alone and enjoy everything there is to see and do ... I would recommend strongly if you have to drive that long to get down there..try to get over to BeaverTail to the lighthouse ... the point there is just beautiful and peaceful. BeaverTail is in Jamestown (tiny island that is bridged from Narragansett on one side and Newport on the other. One of my favorite places in RI.[/qb]
I just went "lighthouse collecting" yesterday. That is going to take pictures of as many lighthouses as I could. I started in Newburyport, MA and worked my way south. We (my husband & I) ended up spending more time on Cape Ann than we expected too. We took pictures of 9 lighthouses. Eventually, we will get into RI for lighthouse collecting. If we are near a lighthouse when we go on our Block Island trip, you better believe we'll do out best to go see the lighthouse <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
I just put up the picture of the Newburyport Rear Range Light which is currently on my front page.
