This morning, we decided to once again skip breakfast (save our scant leftovers from Mike’s) in favor of eating an early lunch. We left Boston and drove south into Rhode Island, stopping in Newport to grab an early lunch at a food truck we discovered last year called Newport Lobster Shack. We each got a lobster roll and an ear of corn for for a tasty lunch.
After lunch, we traveled around the coast of Rhode Island to several lighthouses, including a lighthouse museum/aquarium, an abandoned fort, and more. It was raining too hard at one of the lighthouses for us to get out of the car, but we were able to enjoy the view at the others and to learn a bit about the towers’ histories.
We finally finished our lighthouse exploration as it neared evening, and drove to Noank, CT to Abbott’s Lobster in the Rough, another place we discovered on our last trip. We enjoyed two types of soup and crab cakes to split, and an ear of corn and a lobster roll apiece.
After supper, we drove I-95 through Connecticut towards New York City. Though the traffic was terrible, we did get to enjoy a nice sunset and views of the city on our way to our hotel on Staten Island.
