It's time for this Southerner to put down her mint julep, swallow her pride, and raise a glass of Sam Adams to show some love for all things Yankee.  Well, not necessarily all things Yankee since saying I'm a "Yankee-lover" while in the Red Sox nation would probably earn me a mortal wound from anyone who heard me. What I mean is that it's time the Y&P blog showed some love for "all things Rhode Island-y."    (i.e. lighthouses, beaches, quahogs, stuffies, lobster boats, sailboats, clamcakes, sliders, grinders, fraps/cabinets, coffee milk, Dell's, Iggy's, and the list could go on forever...)

The Yankee, Peach, and lil' Peach just returned from a vacation to Rhode Island to visit Nana and Pop. I promise to soon have boatloads of photos of the little Peach earning her stripes as she stepped foot in the Atlantic ocean for the very first time. (I just have to go through the 700+ pictures that I took!) Sorry to disappoint if you wanted all Evie pics, all the time.

However, before I post a zillion pictures of the cutest little water baby ever, I wanted to post some photos of something I found almost as fascinating: Rhode Island Real Estate! 

Whether a quahog shack or a seaside mega-mansion, everywhere you look there's always a touch of New England...

 My companions for an evening stroll around the neighborhood...

Beautiful rock walls ...

Windows, windows... everywhere.

I loved the look of the wood shingled houses... and almost every house had an American flag.
(I later learned that you always want a flag at your house if you're near the ocean - in order to easily ascertain which way the wind is blowing. Obviously!)

A pink front door. Simply fabulous. 
I loved it.

Beautiful hydrangeas all over the place.

Did I mention there were beautiful hydrangeas all over the place?

More hydrangeas!
By now, I'm pretty sure the neighbors thought I was the paparazzi or stalking someone... 

The nautical theme-
complete with life-sized anchor!

I love the grey and white paint - such a classic beach look.

 Clam rake and wood shed.

Such clean, crisp colors.

A lighthouse in a front yard

A much BIGGER lighthouse.
Point Judith Lighthouse, Narragansett

Simply beautiful.

Can you tell which way the wind is blowing?

A ship is considered real estate, right?

Well, I lied about not including any Evie photos in this blog. Momma Peach can't resist a baby in swimwear, so here you go: 

Hey, Evie... did you enjoy your trip?

"It was totally awesome!!!"

"I mean, really really really awesome!"
