Ok, so here's the thing.....

In true Laurie and Axel fashion, we decided to take the Point Judith Ferry to Block Island and got lost on the way. The ferry ride was cool and lovely. Upon arrival on Block Island, we rented bicycles to tour around on. Axel promised that there were hardly any hills and this would in no way be strenuous. He lied. There were lots of hills. At one point an octogenarian actually passed me on one of the steeper hills.

Complaining aside, it was fantastic. We had a great seaside lunch at the Oar House. The picture below explains where it gets its name! Block Island is full of history and is a nice quiet retreat a few miles off the coast. Because it is fall, it was not very crowded - which we loved.
