Bristol, Rhode Island

Bristol is part of the East Bay region of Rhode Island. Once there we walked around the Blithewold Mansion and admired the gardens with tall trees, especially the giant sequoia. The house also has a beautiful lawn in back that leads to the Narragansett Bay. Unfortunately we were too late for a house tour, but we did drive through Bristol and see many historic houses from the road. It appears that the town has several museums and promising restaurants. My friends drove me to Colt State Park which juts right out into the Bay. Upon returning to Boston they cooked me a delicious dinner and drove me home. Two Saturdays in a row they have taken me on exciting new day trips.
