Weekapaug Groovin'

  1. Well, it's not Florence or Peru :biggrin: but there's a nice little place tucked in the corner of Connecticut and Rhode Island, called Weekapaug. Phish did a song called "Weekapaug Groove' ".

    It's part of Westerly, RI (story here). We like it as it's not as "stuffy" as Watch Hill; I was on a bike ride and one of the mansions had captive deer in the front yard, nice...:cool:

    Over the past few years we've built a nice tradition of helping our friends move in on July 1 (they rent a house for the summer) and then staying through the 4th for some R&R.

    Just a few shots of our visit last week...Thanks for looking!

    Here's the house we stayed in, deceptively large inside as we had about 14 people sleeping there, comfortably....sitting on the porch having a drink and watching the sunset is perfect.

    An antique weathervane in front of the house...

    Our daughters helped our friend's youngest daughter ride a two wheel for the first time!

    There is a small honky tonk area nearby, at Misquamicut
