This summer, America’s first offshore wind farm went up right in my back yard.

I am frequently asked where to stay on Block Island. I confess, I haven’t stayed in a hotel or inn here for 20 years, so I am not the most reliable person on this topic. But, I do think it’s nice to have a list of places to recommend to people, so I set out this to get one.
The perfect fall day = chilly temperatures and a brilliant blue sky.
That is exactly what we had on Block Island this weekend. Morning temps in the mid-30s, warming to the mid-50s in the afternoon.
The perfect walking weather.
We walked all over the island, enjoying no crowds and the stunning October scenery.
The colors were beautiful. Design inspiration everywhere.
Pumpkins on stone walls. On porches.
A completely different feel from summer.
We ate decadent lobster mac and cheese at Winfield’s and fresh halibut at Eli’s.
The Empire movie theatre was showing The Martian and we almost went….
But, after an amazing dinner, we opted for an evening in.
At night, the stars were unbelievable. Every constellation was visible.
It was a fabulous weekend. Something we will do again, very soon!
