Daffodil Madness

The end of April brings the island out of its winter hibernation and into the race for the season's open. Restaurants are popping open....Eli's, the Beachead, Poor People's Pub, the Mohegan Cafe and the Bagel Shop. School vacation last week saw a spike in island visitors and the good weather kept the daffodils in bloom. Today I took a walk on a cold and wet and deserted beach. My dog Maise came upon a sleeping harbor seal hauled out for a rest. She woke the seal up for a moment until we scurried away before it became too spooked. As much as I wanted to linger for a photo I remembered we are not supposed to disturb these beautiful creatures, especially when they are resting. You'll take my word that a simple walk down our east beaches never disappoints! So lucky to live here....

Spring has Sprung!


Daffodils in the Maze

The island is showing signs of spring. The Easter Bunny came and went, (no really, we have our own bunny) and the daffodils are in full bloom. Block Island is peppered with these yellow wake up calls and if you go for a hike in the Maze there are thousands of them. Take little Maximus here, who's family made a tradition of annual daffodil photo shoots. Wanna go for a hike?

Winter's Captain Nemo

The Blizzard Nemo Brushes Block Island

winter storm Water Street

Just a typical winter's day on island. We live and breathe according to what the elements bring so today, some wind and some snow. Nothing in comparison by my recollection to the ice and power outages of a storm a few years back, and they didn't even name it or call it a blizzard.

I'm not discounting what is going on in America (our pet name for the mainland), it looks like Nemo is the captain over many communities just a ferry ride from here.

With our purple flag flyin' high and our ferries grounded for the past 2 days, we'll stay safe and sound under a soft blanket of snow and a world away from parking bans and power outages.

That's winter on Block Island.
