That's my World for Tuesday, January 13, 2009




That's my World
for Tuesday,
January 13, 2009








OAKLAND BEACH, WARWICK, RI
A favorite place my hubby and I love to go to is to
Oakland Beach
in Warwick, RI.








"This would be a great place to take our 2 toddler grandsons from SC" while we watched them for few days this past October while their Mommy and Daddy went to New Hampshire for a wedding, that my son was to be a groomsman.











The boys were given new experiences like eating doughboys from the famous Gus's (Iggys) since 1950's. Growing up this was my family trip practically every other weekend. There used to be a carousel and a carnival midway that was so much fun as well as the beach to swim.














They also tried clam cakes and chowder. After eating we walked the bike bath and came close to seagulls eating and then had fun collecting seashells. Finally they enjoyed the playground made to look like a ship.
A fun place for all of us and
a great RI landmark

I have always enjoyed my visits to R.I. especially Block Island.
Your pics look like the perfect summer spot!

Very pretty shots. I love the one with the yachts!

Have a look at my world here. Thanks!

What a lovely state your Rhode Island is and you folks have to be hardy to live each winter with so much snow. We still haven't had a real snowfall yet in Virginia. Just a few snowflakes flying around in the air. By the way we are the same age, although I hit 65 in June.

I've never been to RI but it looks like a beautiful state in which to live. The beach is such a lovely place to take children. I bet that was a special day in their lives.

It looks so peaceful and secluded from the stresses and strains of modern living.

Thanks for sharing part of Rhode Island with us. I've only been to RI once -- I may need to go back.

Looks like a lovely place. I love the beach. Sure makes me wish it was summertime...

It is so nice to have a place where you go regularly, that then becomes a tradition and an emotionally safa place to look forward to going to again. So many nice things to enjoy at your world. not least to watch the little ones having adventures and fun.

Thanks Lily, Oakland Beach is a perfect summer spot, I have only been to Block Island once, however many times to Martha's Vineyard (Oak Bluffs).


Thank you, too Jenn, I also love the view of the water with its yachts and sailboats! So relaxing...


Joann and Jack, thank you for your comment and visiting. It must be
wonderful to be without snow and the bitter coldness. BTW when in June is your birthday? mine is the 29th

Ok, when's the clambake?

GrandmaKathleen said...

Cherdecor. Oakland Beach was a lovely place to take my grandsons to. We made it a special day in their lives that they are still talking about. The comment from their Mommy, Vicky, tells it all.

Babooshka, Going to the waterfront is always peaceful and serene and a way to releave our daily stresses
and strains of modern living and it is usually 10 degrees cooler than the city.

Antigoni, thanks for commenting today. I love visiting your cheerful blog today about the world of your daughters.

Vicky, We so much enjoyed being with the boys and helping them to
create memories with Grandma Kathleen and Poppy John. I can still recall Nolan saying to me I don't like crabs,Grandma, You won't let one bite me?

GrandmaKathleen said...

Sara, Thank for visiting

Thanks George for visiting and following me. You will need to return to RI. You would not recognize our new Renaissance Providence.

GrandmaKathleen said...

Sandy, I love clambakes and would love to share one with you. thanks for stopping by.

Arija, your Tuesday World blog of your rainforest is breathtaking. I would say that your rainforest is your safe place as is my Oakland Beach, two different locations but 2 places of great moments.
