I Like to Explore New Places

Up until Easter, I haven’t posted here on my blog for a very long time. Why? Because I’ve moved! And you all know how much fun that is, right? It was a tedious, exhausting, and a long duration of a move due to some issues that were out of my control. But in hindsight, I think moving is a good thing.

Moving makes you purge material things, organize the stuff you decide to keep, and gives you a new (and hopefully a creative) outlook on life. I now have my own office. YAY. I’ll post pics of that when I get it a bit more organized.

Here is the cute little farmhouse where I live now. There are hydrangea bushes all around it, I can’t wait until we get further along in the season to see all of the color and blooms.

The other thing that I enjoy about moving is getting to explore a new area. What kinds of stores are in your neighborhood? What are the neighbors like? I love to take long walks and check out new stuff!

There are gorgeous stone walls everywhere. I can’t imagine the time and patience it took to build them!

There is a blueberry and paw paw farm next door. Bonus!!!

Here is my latest adventure….

Down the street are the remnants of an old amusement park, Rocky Point Park. It operated from the late 1840s until it closed in 1995. It had quite a history and created wonderful childhood memories for so many people in the New England area. Almost all of the structures have been razed, and the city of Warwick has created a beautiful seaside park and walking path.

That’s Narragansett Bay at the end of the path.

This is what’s left of the Sky Ride. How cool!
