Block Island Vacation

I am finding all three hundred and some of our vacation pictures to be pretty overwhelming. I did not want to take the computer and blog while we are there so now i am trying to sort it out a little so that you all can see what a beautiful and amazing place this is.
We knew before we got there that Block Island was going to be something special but we really had no idea how special until we stepped off the ferry(Avery used to call them Fairy Tales!!). This picture, above is the view from our hotel room. In my opinion, it could not have been better.
We explored on our first day there, taking the 15 minutes to drive the whole island....not a big place! On the open ocean side we found this beach(above) and yes it is as far down as it looks....we took the stairs. Not so bad going down, but going up was a whole other story. I think those might appear in another post.
And these two pictures are of what they call the town beach and the view to either side. I think if you click on the picture you can see all the beautiful old victorian hotels....the whole island was like a step back in time. Amazing!
