Drive. Park. Run.

Tiverton, RI

My father-in-law advised me to run near the water. Run different routes. Run with him??   Let’s be clear here. I cannot keep up with my 60 something father-in-law. He is a marathoner after all. Some day I hope to be able to run alongside someone without running at a snail’s pace. But isn’t this view [...]

Tour Newport, RI by Helicopter {Giveaway}

Newport Helicopter Tours @anniestow

Last Friday afternoon, Chris and I finally got the chance to celebrate nine years of wedded bliss! It was the best “date night” we’ve had in a long time, thanks to Bird’s Eye View Helicopters.

It’s Not Too Early for Apple Picking

Many folks are still in summer mode (believe me, I’m one of them), but if you want to take your family apple picking this season, you should start thinking about apples sooner than later!  The orchards are ready and seem to be about ten days ahead of schedule! If you hold off and wait until [...]

10 Reasons to Visit Gooseberry Beach

Pissed, because we wouldn’t let her take her hermit crabs home!

Tiverton Always Leads to Gray’s Ice Cream

After Bloggy Boot Camp Boston on Saturday, I drove the Traverse down to Tiverton, RI. through downpours, thunder, lightning, rainbows, hail and lots of traffic on 93 and 95.  I couldn’t get down there fast enough to catch up with the rest of the Stow clan.  Although it was absolutely lovely to be away for the [...]

Sunday Drive: Tiverton

Some more beautiful reasons why I love Tiverton, RI.  So much to do, so much to see.   I can’t wait to get lunch at Evelyn’s next time.  They have just recently opened for the season!  I’d kill for a clam strip plate and a blueberry beer right about now.   Tillerman, what’cha doin’ on May 28th? Gorgeous, [...]

Coastal Wine Trail

We had such an awesome weekend in Tiverton.  Yummy dinners (as usual, thank you Grandma!), great views, built-in baby-sitters and comfy beds that we got to lie in well past 6am!  :)  I love R.I. On Saturday we took the oldest two with us to our favorite Newport beach-Gooseberry.  It was glorious.  Emily and Aidan [...]

The Polar Express

A good friend of mine at work informed me of the Blackstone Valley Polar Express ride, which is a magical 90 minute ride on the Providence Worcester railroad at Christmastime. I knew other friends who did this up in North Conway, NH, but it’s super expensive and a long way to go. So why not [...]

Traversin’ it to Tiverton

We took off to Tiverton in the Traverse this weekend for a visit with Grandma and Grandad. Hadn’t been since January! Since the weather was so beautiful, we took advantage of the air conditioning and the sun roof!!! Felt so good to drive with the windows open! Mommy and Daddy fought for the seat behind [...]
