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

Narragansett, RI

A seaside town with the feel of the Hamptons. We drove from Newport via 1A Ocean Road. Passing by the Narragansett town beach by the Little Neck Pond. It looks busy, Jones Beach of Narragansett? The late lunch at Coast Guard House and dessert at Monahan’s, at the end of ocean road were good.

Medusa @ Met

Medusa @ the Met – a Greek mythology. She was a monster, a Gorgon, g beautiful woman with snake hair. If you stare at her you’ll die.

This spring/summer collection of 1994 was done by Gianni Versace (1946-97) that put him on the map as one of great Italian designer when Elizabeth Hurley wore it to a red carpet event (premiere) that year.
