    Is it a VT phtographer?

    by Pawtuxet Written Jun 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great place for a photographer to experiment, practice, and capture some mighty fine shots of the waterfront as well as the quaint architecture and plenty of sports activities. I didn't ask him if he was a member of VT. Maybe I should have!

    Enjoy the gulls

    Hang out for a while at the town docks...with the seagulls. It's very interesting there. You can watch the folks going to the fish store, coming back from a day on their cabin cruiser, quahaugers coming in from their work on the bay, lobstermen readying their boats and traps for the following day...young guys coming in from their day of kayaking.....

    A spectacular garden

    At Smith's Castle, the volunteers have made an agreement with the University of Rhode Island Master Gardeners to care for the garden at the side of the house. Flowers have been researched and the garden developed to closely resemble the earlier gardens of the community.

    It took me two tries to get a picture of this church in December 1969. A couple of years later, St. Paul's was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

    St. Paul's Church ** (added 1972 - Building -#72000009)

    Architectural Style: Other, Romanesque
    Area of Significance: Architecture

    Recently, they found carpenter ants under the shingles, and so the whole church bell tower had to be taken apart and restored, including restoring the cross at the top of the steeple.

    Rest by the bay

    Here is a couple with the right idea. They visited the Smith's Castle and then decided to enjoy the grounds overlooking the water. It was a sensational sunny day. Just perfect.
