Winter in Rhode Island

I love my hometown.  It's a quaint little stretch of beach right on the Rhode Island shoreline.  While summers in the ocean were my favorite, I also always loved when the tourists packed up and it was just us "townies" in the winter.  Mike and I never forget to stop by my boarded-up town beach when we make trips back to the Northeast around the holidays.  This year, the sun was shining and the weather was perfect - almost 60 degrees!  
Unfortunately, my favorite mini golf course is now just sand (thanks to Hurricane Sandy), but it'll only be a few more months until the snack shack and my favorite ice cream window are back open for summer 2016.

Wow I can't believe they are still rebuilding. That will be fun when they re-open though.

LOVING that pineapple necklace and those gorgeous earrings! I still can't believe how warm it was for Christmas this year, wouldn't be perfect for it to always be that warm up there during the holidays?
