New Shoreham, RI  2021

I've seen some remarkable pictures taken with iPhones.  I'm still struggling using it effectively, much preferring my DLSR.

Old Harbor, Block Island

New Shoreham, RI 2021

Think all of the ferries from either Connecticut or Rhode Island dock in the Old Harbor.  It's an easy walk from here to some great beaches, restaurants, and gift shops.

Eagle and Fort Trumbull

New London, CT  2021

It was a perfect day for a ride on a ferry.  The USCG Barque Eagle  is berthed in New London when not on training cruises.  Just beyond the barque to the left is the historic, Fort Trumbull, now a state park.

Departure to Block Island

New London, CT  2021

I took a break from photography and blogging last week, needing to attend to some other matters.  Nothing serious, just other work that needed to be done.  My wife and I had a day trip scheduled to visit, Block Island, RI, a relatively short ferry ride from New London on the high speed ferry.  I'll be sharing photos of our trip this week, all taken with my iPhone.

Ok,  who out there doesn't like Dairy Queen?    There's always a line at this one.

Chester, CT  2021

 This looks like it might also have been a bank building at some time.  I'm not sure, though.

Chester, CT  2021

I've seen a number of old bank buildings re-purposed into another business.  This one now is an Italian restaurant and bar.

Little House Brewing Co.

Chester, CT  2021

 Craft breweries are popping up everywhere these days.  Even in little houses like this.  The beer was pretty good too.
