The scenic route is awesome. Bellevue Avenue is a tree and mansion-lined stretch of road with a mixture of camera-clad tourists and everyday running residents. Not too far down the road is Ocean Drive. This drive opens up to beautiful Brenton Point. My favorite place in the state. Well, it's a toss-up between there and Beavertail Park in Jamestown actually. Brenton Point is a state park with a big, green field, mainly used for kite-flying in the summer and a gorgeous, rocky ocean view. I could sit there all day. Here are some shots from today, don't mind the awkward angles - I couldn't see a thing as I was staring into the sun...

We stopped at a consignment shop and I was so hungry I began to feel dizzy so we went to find something for lunch. We ended up at Besos Tea House. Not bad. Not great. The atmosphere was awesome though. I don't know who decorated that place but KUDOS.
We also stopped at HomeGoods and bought some new pillows, white sheets and a big, fluffy, white plush blanket for the bed which I promptly washed upon entering our home. I cannot WAIT to hit the sack! I do wish the castle had been open for viewing but it's only a thirty minute drive so it's not like we can't go next weekend... or tomorrow for that matter. We had a nice day together. We really are a couple of goofballs who break into inappropriate laughter no matter the setting. It happened several times today - that's what makes our days awesome.
