LIRR @ Flushing


The condo building on the former parking lot by the LIRR train on 41st Avenue in Flushing is going up quickly. The assault in Flushing is 海陆空 multifaucet: from the air, the road, the rail. A small part of it is on the water but that part poses no beauty nor headache. The airplanes, the buses and the trains are adding tension in the congested area.

 

… and the working girls

This is a categroy 4 monster, from south of Bermuda. We got rained on since Sunday.

Coast Guard House


40 Ocean Road
Narragansett, RI 02882

Definitely will return.

A little giant next to the Narragansett beach, looking out to the Atlantic Ocean. Outdoor, roof top and a/c indoor seatings. Great view. Good service. Yummy food – V8 salad! Nice beer and wine glasses. Narragansett larger is delicious, so is the Spasso Pinot Grigio. The only complaint is the clams came with lots of water under the ice. Not good. 

A big shut for their toilets – done away with the water tanks. I last saw it in Germany a few years ago. Wondering when will USA to change or catch up.

Minute Man Park

America began here …

This national park is good if history is your thing – especially independent war. 

One by land and two by the sea 

The regulars are coming 

The 30 min guided tour should allot  45 minutes. And the 30 min long ‘movie’ is really good – a professional production. There is a little walk from the parking lot to the visit center but with this surrounding I think it’s ok. 

We drove to the North Bridge  – the shot that heard around the world
