Thanksgiving in Rhode Island

Leave a comment

In the last few years we have made a new tradition of spending Thanksgiving in Rhode Island. It started with the invitation of dear friends who live there, and evolved to a 3-day vacation we look forward to each year. For me, being by the sea adds a special value to the destination. Not that I don’t enjoy sightseeing everywhere else, but just walking at the beach and being deafened by the roar of the sea is enough for me.

I was quite touched to see this pumpkin left out at the beach. I like to think that it was someone’s offering to the sea. A very New England image, a pumpkin and the waves. An offering to the sea for all it gives us, material and not. I add my thanks to it, and to the person who left it.
