Day Two


Since Day One was so full of action, we slept in on Day Two then hit the road for more! The Sharpes took us to Rhode Island to swim at the beach. Before heading out for a swim, we ate lunch right on the coast. Mind you, I don’t like seafood. I was just trying to be a sport for my husband and his food-loving friend, Jeremiah. Tony had a lobster roll and was ready to head to the ocean. Tony had never been in the Atlantic Ocean. Here’s a horrible picture of us getting our feet wet:

The place we went was Judith Point, Rhode Island. The stretch of beach was a state park that had nice facilities. Parking was robbery, but what can you expect?

After spending the day wading, playing, and reading we headed back toward the homefront. Jeremiah, in his infinite wisdom, took us to Ted’s for dinner. The place was a tad disconcerting from the outside:

However, I have learned long ago that the scarier the place looks, the better the food usually is. Not necessarily good for you, which is fine by me. The thing that sets this burger joint apart from the rest is that the burgers are STEAMED. Sounded gross in the car when it was being described, but once I saw the glob of melted cheese on top of said burger and some perfectly cooked homefries, I was a believer.

I ate until I could eat no more. It was cheesy heaven. The place was playing classic rock and housing bikers. There were maybe 3 small booths and a counter. Tony and I sat at the counter so we could watch Ted in action. Definitely a good meal. We treated at Friendly’s for dessert and headed back to the Sharpe Homestead for some downtime.
