Narragansett/Newport: Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July!

Lately, I have been going to the beach in the morning, then seeing friends in Newport during the afternoon. Almost every night has ended with either a frozen yogurt from Beluga or ice cream from Brickley's-- #rhodeislandliving.

My boyfriend came to visit from Boston last night and we went to the fireworks display at Narragansett Beach. I uploaded a video of the fireworks, but managed to take a video of the dullest part of the show. I promise it was cooler than it seems.

Today, we went to the beach late morning with the family, stopped by Monahan's for clam cakes, and head out to Newport for dinner and dessert. We took a short walk on the Cliff Walk, then caught a pedicab to get to the Brick Alley Pub. Our driver, a URI senior film major, invited us to be part of his documentary. All we had to do was answer the question:

"What is your definition of love?"

I am not going to say my answer, but there is a thought-provoking question for you to think on.

My boyfriend had to go back to Boston today, but we had a great Fourth of July.

I work at Beluga froyo and my friend is the manage at Orange Leaf froyo. Partisanship at its finest: #froyolove. 
Massive thunderstorm in Newport. My friend and I got caught in the rain, so... 
We ran from the shops on Thames to Rhino Bar. My friend ordered a grilled cheese made with Texas toast and I ordered chowder.  Rhino Bar recently added a clubbing space adjacent from the bar and revved up the food menu. Definitely worth checking out.
