Wickford, Rhode Island
Daffodil Days in Wickford is this weekend, so Bear and I went to check it out. We'd attended last year's and enjoyed it enough to go back this year.
The village daffodils lining Brown and Main Streets, and since daffodils are my favorite flower, it was especially nice to see.
Today there was a fashion show (that we missed). Tomorrow will be more festivities. We did get to see the bagpiper, a lone woman marching slowly along the sidewalks as she played. She was very good.
We stopped by the Wickford Diner - a disappointment (more on that in another post). Other than that, though, we had a good time seeing the sights. There are a lot of historic buildings in Wickford, and we saw many of them.
The First Baptist Church
St. Paul's Church
Old Narragansett Church
(we'll go back this summer to get a tour of the inside).
Affectionately known as "Old Yellow"
I don't know if this building has a name, but it's got an interesting shape.
I'll have to do some reasearch.
We didn't go into any of the historic buildings (more on some of those later, too), although we did a little browsing in the shops. It was a great way to spend a sunny afternoon.
