Weekend Wanderings!


We had another beautiful weekend, but it was hot. We stayed home most of saturday and waited till the late afternoon, before we hit the Wickford Art Show. It is the oldest running art show in New England. There was a lot of beautiful paintings and unique art, as well as photographers. The artists are lined up on the sidewalks, on both sides of the two main roads, so a lot of walking and art to take in.

One booth that caught my eye and drew me in was a photograph of rocks with a red heart rock in the center. The work was by Patrick Zephyr and he truly captures the essence of the scene and evokes the emotions of his photographs. The heart photo can be seen HERE. I bought a card with the heart photo, that was in my budget;) I am inspired to try some photos with the rocks and beach items, I have collected.

Here is the end portion of Main Street in Wickford. We also stopped in the shops along the way, but most are specialty items and geared for tourists.


Sunday we visited my SIL and enjoyed her beach. I got to try my little sit on kayak, which I realize is only good for playing on, not to do any distance. Of course, Bean had a good time, he was able to go off leash and run along the beach and enjoy some time in the water.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend, as well.

When my daughter went to the University of Rhode Island we found Wickford! Oh how I loved that little town there was a used bookstore on the corner just after the bridge that sold little topiaries. I bought my fair share from her and there was a cute cheese and specialty food shop that is now gone. We thought hey how about a little tiny house here. Ha ha ha we could afford nothing
I love the pictures! I have been collecting heart rocks for a few years only have a few.
looks like Bean enjoyed the water.

I have recently seen posts of heart-shaped stones.
I'll bet Bean liked that off-leash time as much as you did.
