Sakonnet Rocks


We spent the day out near Little Compton and on Sakonnet Point which is one of our favorite spots to hang out when we are in Billy's old hood. The point is really one of the most beautiful spots I have seen in New England. You can swim, snorkle, tide pool and spend hours just wandering the beach searching for cool tumbled rocks. I ALWAYS come home with my pockets jammed full of rocks. Some of them are way too big to be carrying around in a pants pocket. I love rocks. If you get what I mean by that... then you get what I mean by that. If you don't...then there is no explaining it. Some rocks just feel right. These must come home with me.







After walking the point we drove back through to Tiverton Four Corners and had a mango chutney and chickpea sandwich at the local deli and then (of course) crossed the street to Gray's Ice Cream for a cone. The whole area is riddled with old stone walls, huge old trees and the most quaint old shingled cottages you can imagine. Lots of OLD stuff. This is a good thing.

Have you seen that old Lucy and Desi move - The Long, Long Trailer? If not, you must! We love rocks too, but we try not to bring too many home.

Ha! YES! We have seen that movie and I am gonna go ahead and say it must be a red head thing because I am pretty much as bad as Lucy. Being the weirdo that I am though... I will end up shipping these rocks to family and friends. Gifts. I give rocks. It's a gift that lasts... forever. And they are low maintenance. I promise I will not keep them in the trailer once we leave here. ;)

I am looking forward to getting a rock for Christmas and I do think you are lying and that there will be rocks hidden in the trailer......always.
Some things never change.
The pictures are great! A very inviting spot to be sure!

I also have a rock collection , Mostly beach tumbled rocks Tucked away in a draw . in labled bags with beach and date. Saving them for what? They are just beautuful. Rocks and stones become jems.

Hi Peter... Yes... I am going to have to sort through my rock collection before we hit the road to head North. I am in real trouble once we hit Maine. It's one of my favorite rock hunting places. Maybe I should start photographing them instead of actually bring them home?
