Sand Dunes & Stuffies: Let’s Go to the (Rhode Island) Beach!

Your feet feel heavy in the deep, soft sand as you stagger clumsily up the path from the parking lot.  Between the sand dunes, it is eerily still and quiet, the only exception being your awkward beach chair knocking against your cooler with every step: Ka-chink. Ka-chink. Ka-chink. Should I take off my flip flops yet? You ask yourself. Nah, not just yet – that sand is hot!

And then, you see it: The path ends and the vast blue ocean opens up in front of you. The wind is blowing, the waves are crashing, and – whoa, watch out! Don’t step on that sandcastle!

Hours later, you’re still here, and you aren’t leaving any time soon. You body surfed (so what if it took you 30 minutes to work up the courage to get past waist-deep in that chilly water?), combed for shells, and waited in line too long for Del’s Lemonade (it was worth it.) Hungry now? Stroll to the nearby beach shack for some chowder & stuffies. No, make that clam cakes. Okay, fine, all three.

Millions of people travel from all over the world to visit Rhode Island’s beautiful seashores. The sandy beaches, quaint seaside towns, wonderful seafood, and so much more are the heart of our one and only “Ocean State.”

So come on! Dig out the sunscreen and squeeze into last year’s bathing suit. That’s right – we’re going to the beach! But not just ANY beach… a Rhode Island beach.

And don’t forget your cash to buy me a Del’s! =)
