Favorite Island, Part II

Part I, here

After a long, windy ferry ride, the girls and I arrived at Block Island, eager to spend the day exploring. Our first stop was one we'd visited years ago when our whole family visited the island- an animal farm. Some man began it years ago as a hobby, collecting different animals from around the world. It's pretty cool!

This guy was cracking me up- he was playing with my sister and copying everything she was doing!

My sister saw this thermometer- I'm not completely convinced it's correct, but it was pretty hot that day!

From the animal farm, we could see the beach- love it!

After some delicious ice cream (we forgot to take pictures of that!) we headed towards the beach. The water was gorgeous, and the girls and I frolicked for a few hours in the waves, which were surprisingly powerful!

The girls also enjoyed just sitting on the edge of the beach, obviously enjoying themselves!
