Today we are going to explore Coventry!
First, we went to Maxwell Mays Wildlife Refuge. This is a great place to hike and look for animals, and it is owned by the Audubon Society of RI. When we got there we saw many grasshoppers flying and landing around the parking lot. We then got out of the car and started our hike. There were many blackberries and blueberries along the trail. We picked the ones that were ripe and they were sweet. We walked all the way to the pond and back. The pond view was gorgeous. On the way back there were even more blueberries and we saw a young male deer with little stubs for antlers, but it wasn't so young that it still had spots. It did not have any spots. We watched it for a little while and then it turned and galloped into the trees.
Next we went to Read School House. It was a one room school house built in 1871. It was used as a school until the 1950’s. We took some pictures and then headed on our way.
After that we went to Spell Hall, the Major General Nathanael Greene Homestead. It was built in 1770. The house was really big and it had a lot of land around it. We walked around the outside of the house and there was a well. People had boarded it up though so no one could fall in.
After looking around, we got back in the car, drove to part of the bike path and saw the Anthony Mills, which is now apartments but was originally a textile mill. This mill is built along Flat River, and there is a waterfall near it.
We were getting hot, so we found a swimming area at a pond and went in the water. There were some fish and ducks there, and on the other side of the pond, there were even turtles!!! We stayed there for awhile and talked to the other people who were swimming there as well.
The last thing we did in Coventry was get ice cream. We went to a great place called Udder Delights. I got a sundae with hot fudge and mint chocolate chip ice cream. It also had whipped cream, walnuts, and a cherry on top. It was sooooooo good!!!!! We left a painted rock at Udder Delights. I had fun in Coventry, especially swimming and eating ice cream.

We are a family who loves to travel and explore. Covid-19 has changed our plans for summer 2020, but we are making the best out of the situation by exploring our beautiful home state of Rhode Island. During the summer of 2020, we are hoping to visit every town in Rhode Island. Thank you for joining us on our journey!
