rhode island has an island

block island is a small island, located just off the coast of rhode island (which is not long island, but rather, a state). ..huh?

you can travel there by "fast ferry" (which is a catamaran on steroids), but we always opt for the slower journey.

_______________________________
there's something about the rhode island beaches. ..they are rough & raw, yet inviting. ..the salty air and the olfactory stimulation from changing tides can (momentarily) relieve one from inner anxieties.

rugged coastline connects a small, rebellious state with the atlantic ocean. ..on a day like today, when the water is flat and the sun is bright, you are grateful just to inhale the scenery.
