A perfect lobster roll. A stuffed-full-to-brimming, not-too-much-mayo lobster roll. You can buy these throughout the year in RI, but many of the best seafood shacks are open only in the summer.
The beaches. I am not one of those people who spends an entire day at the beach, but I do enjoy gazing at them and walking on them. This is Napatree Point at Watch Hill, RI, as far west as you can get before you cross into Connecticut. It’s a lovely beach with impossible parking in the summer. Easier on many levels in the off-season.
Summer sunsets. Bailey Island, Maine.
A clear lake on a hot afternoon.
