I have a few more adventures to share from my trip to Massachusetts before I quit dreaming and get back to real life.
Before we headed to the airport, we drove into Providence, RI. First, breakfast. We found the perfect place – The Classic Cafe. The interior was perfect for the old diner feel.
The food was excellent, too.
Our next stop was Federal Hill. This is the ‘Little Italy’ of Providence.
This looked like it was right out of a scene in The Soprano’s. I kept waiting for Tony and the boys to show up. 🙂
We ventured into some of the stores/delis/restaurants.
One ‘store’ had a sign outside that you could pick out your live chicken and they would butcher it right there for you. Sorry, I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t even step inside the store.
My favorite was Tony’s Colonial Food. It was just amazing.
I always thought there was just black and green olives. Wow, was I wrong!
But my favorite part of Tony’s Colonial Food……..was Tony!
He was super sweet and talked about his store and then asked if I was going to Newport. Newport is a coastal town with one mansion after another. He then asked me to wait and came back with a book all about the Newport Mansions. He then flipped through the pages showing me the amazing architecture – one more ostentatious than the next. I loved listening to Tony talk and was glad he allowed me to take his picture.
Our visit to Providence was a great way to finish up the week. A wonderful time.
Now I’m back on the ranch. The horses, dogs and even the cats were happy to see us.
I hope you enjoyed this vacation with me. Make this week a good one.
One step at a time,
