    Preserving the landscape

    That means each and every old vine you can save..... Here we see the trumpet vine which is about 100 yrs. old, according to the guides at Smith's Castle. I'll try to return to see it in full bloom in August.

    At one point there was a terrible conflict between the colonists and the natives. this stone marks a mass grave for those who died during the conflict in the 1600's. The area is a peaceful setting on the grounds of Smith's Castle near the water.

    These young school girls volunteer their time to be costumed guides at the Smith's Castle. They have been "on the job" for about 3 years already. Originally they did it as their community service for school, but they got hooked. They are very well informed and quite charming. Convinced there is a spirit in the house which scares them, they wince as they approach the room with the woman's portrait.

    Some folks are lucky enough to live on the waterfront in a historic home with dock and beach just outside their back door. Well, maybe you could bring a 6 pak over to visit for a while.

    The Twins

    If you call for help, there is a tow boat available out of Wickford. Think they take 3 AAA's ?
    The twins return to port at the end of the day.
