Of Bubbles and Beaches

 We just got back from our vacation to Rhode Island!  It was a lot of fun.  I didn’t get all that many pictures though, because my camera stopped working about halfway through the trip. 😦  Anyway, I’ll just post about part of the trip, and my sister Megan will probably post about the rest. (You can find her blog here at dandelionsanddaisys.wordpress.com.)  I will post about (as you might have guessed from the title) the beach and… bubbles!  Our grandmother gave us kids each a thing of bubbles for our trip, and we had fun blowing them. (Thanks, Gram!)

First, a little bit about the part of Rhode Island we saw.  The houses were almost all tidy and pretty, and a lot of them had flowerbeds.  There were these gorgeous blue hydrangeas everywhere!  We even saw a shop called… The Blue Hydrangea!  We saw a lot of little stone walls there too- some were just stones stacked on top of each other.  There were also a lot of beaches.  

While we were there, we went looking in several neat shops.  We got an ornament for our Christmas tree, and the kids each got a souvenier of Rhode Island.  And, among other things, we toured a gorgeous mansion, went on a boat ride, and had s’mores (of course)


Now for the beach!   The waves at the beach were really big, but you can’t really tell from the pictures.  There weren’t many shells, but there were lots of different kinds of seaweed.  You can see it on the sand two pictures below.  The picture on the sand is a little weird, but its the only one I have of the sand.  I wish I got a picture of this big sandcastle and the wall that we built to protect it from the waves.  The wall was more impressive than the sandcastle!  It protected the castle for a pretty long time, but then a huge wave kind of destroyed the wall and the castle.  

The water was really cold, but not as cold as the Maine water we went in another year- that was FREEZING!

I just had to put this last picture in for my Aunt Andrea. 😉  I think this was a restaurant or something.
