The Beavertail Lighthouse is easy to get to from land, but a view from water is really great. You can see all the rocks the lighthouse is protecting boats from hitting, and all the people visiting the lighthouse.
While on the Lighthouse Cruise it was fun seeing other people excited about the trip as well. This photo I took because the woman taking a photo looks excited and has wind blowing in her hair - something that happened quite a bit on the high speed boat!
The Galilee Bird Sanctuary is visible from the road. I literally stood out of my car for this photo. The skyline of the houses is what caught my attention here. The storm was darkening the sky so much that the edge of it made the houses a silhouette.
The day before Hurricane Earl is supposed to hit Rhode Island, I went to Point Judith Lighthouse in Narragansett. I counted 80 people surfing and more were continuously joining in. Here I could count 30 surfers, only one of which is actually surfing. The windy conditions were making it very sloppy, and with so many people in the water they were constantly dodging each other. Thankfully while I was there nobody collided!
