Day 2.183: Miss Aquatic Ream

After checking out of our rooms, we ventured just down the road to the town's aquarium (I'll give you another day - are none of you 1980's Julia Roberts fans..?). Favourites were sea-lions, belugas and penguins, but we saw a shark or two too.

Mid-afternoon we packed ourselves into the car to drive across the Rhode Island border, turn around and return to the gas-station next to the aquarium to refuel before heading home. We didn't really plan it that way, but it just seemed like we should head north - we really wanted to go west, but setting off on the highway going south seemed all wrong (but was in fact right). What a mix-up (a bit like today's title)!

Once again I have several pictures, this time I'm only disturbing Exile #2 as everyone else has somewhere else to sleep, but I have a work-day tomorrow to think about - so I'll leave you with this and the promise/threat of more pictures later.


  1. Can one drive north across the Rhode Island border? On a car ferry from Dominican Republic?

    I would say the pizza was more mystical than obscure. And you probably only get that kind of pizza in Connecticut.

  2. I believe the State you visited was Connecticut and the Lighthouse and Aquarium were at Mystic Seaport.

  3. Very good both - I knew you had it in you!

    Andy: :-) We were travelling east, but on a nominally north/south highway - hence the confusion. There is a border between RI and NY across the Long Island Sound, but any traversal of that would stretch the definition of 'drive' just as much as yours I think.
