Conanicut Island

My first stop on Friday morning -- after coffee (and a doughnut?) at the hotel, a bus ride to the airport, and picking up my rental car -- was Beavertail Point at the southern tip of Conanicut Island, at the entrance to Narragansett Bay. It's a very old lighthouse (and the site of even older ones) on a rocky point extended out into the Atlantic.

I drove out to Fort Getty, but really didn't explore -- I had an ambitious schedule for the day. And checked out the shore in Jamestown, the largest town on the island, which faces east across the bay towards the bridge and Newport.

And then it was off to Narragansett and a series of beaches farther east. It was chilly. I may come back to that.
