We took the ferry to Block Island today.  This evening we walked down to Mansion Beach.  Cris has a knack for finding the most amazing things on beaches.  She found an iPhone once in South Carolina.

Tonight she found this.

And then she found the box it came in.

It appears to be some kine of weather device that was attached to a balloon.

Here’s the code number.

It’s in the back of the car now.

Here’s a sand castle about to disappear.

Cris and I took the ferry to Block Island on Tuesday.  I was photographing the foam kicked up from the props (or jets?) when this woman’s head popped out.

I hadn’t been there for at least 30 years, and I had forgotten what a nice place it is.  We were visiting our friends Scott and Lisa and their kids at their rental on the south side of the island, and the light at the end of the day was really nice.

We left early the next morning, but it was just about a perfect 24 hours.
