My husband and I had our annual just-the-two-of-us date last weekend. My in-laws kindly made the long trek from Maine so that they could keep the children company while we were away.
Because we did not like Boston’s horrendous traffic but wanted to be in a big city anyway, we went to Providence, RI which, apart from having Boston’s treats at cheaper prices, is much closer to us. It was a snowy Saturday. Another storm was visiting. Here are some scenes from the Roger Williams Park, a family friendly place that boasts of a zoo and a Botanical Garden, among others.
The place was not as lonely as it seemed from the pictures though. There were a lot of activities around – children sledding on the snow-covered slopes, couples out on a (snow-shoes) walk, pets being walked around. There were even swans on the lake and robins on the banks of the lake. I will post some of these photos when I get the chance. It was a lovely wintry afternoon. If only there was some sun to light up the place.
Thank you for coming by.
P.S. I’m sorry if I am slower than usual in responding and visiting – I’ve been under the weather for some days now and I am forced to get to bed earlier than I like. I hope to catch up with you soon.
