Rome Point photos-North Kingstown

Recently I went for a walk at Rome Point on Narragansett Bay. I had never been there before and what a pleasant surprise it was. This 230 arce protected open space is officially known as the John H. Chafee Nature Preserve. Access to the coast is by way of a long straight path that leads from a gravel parking lot on Rt 1A, which is about a mile south of Rt 138. Back in the 1960’s, Rome Point was a proposed site of a nuclear power plant and thankfully that never happened. What a beautiful place it is, most noted these days for the seals that hang out there in winter. When I went the seals were gone, having headed north for the summer. I picked a perfect spring day to go, with perfect light, as the photos show. No doubt I’ll be back there again soon.

Pictures of my walk are in an album at our Facebook page
