WHAT’S UP EVERYONE? Y’ALL BETTER BUCKLE YOUR SEATBELTS BECAUSE WE’RE GOING ON A WILD RIDE TO WARREN! Hi Everyone, my name is Aemilia and I will be your tour guide today as we visit the town of little old Warren. Let’s go!!!
Personally, I came into Warren with low expectations. I had kind of only ever known Warren as the town we drove through on our way to Bristol, and there honestly did not seem like there was anything to do there whatsoever. As you might have guessed by the fact that I’m writing this blog post, I was mistaken. We started off our journey to Warren with a single step, as one usually starts journeys. Except this journey was not a journey of 1000 miles, it was more like a journey of about 27.3 miles. Still, not a bad journey overall. We parked our car on the side of the road which I can’t remember specifically but my guess is that it looked like what my grandma would describe as a “cute little New England downtown area”. (Heidi says - we parked on Water Street) There was a lovely assortment of little shops painted in various colors, none of which we went into because, you know, covid. We did not dismay however at the thought of not being able to enter these quaint little stores, and proceeded down towards the water, as we typically do whenever we are anywhere near water. This particular route to water led us through a very nice apartment complex, and to a nice view of whatever was on the other side of the water. Really I don’t know what it was but it looked pleasant. I think there were also boats (it would make sense anyway). On our way back, we took time to admire the seating area and the nice grilling spaces for the use of the lovely people who reside within these apartment buildings. Someday it could be us - who knows?
Moving on, we strolled down the cute little streets of Warren and did not come into contact with any of the friendly villagers who might live there. Though we also didn’t come into contact with any unfriendly villagers, so that was good too. We love some good villagers. As long as they’re wearing masks. And being nice. We continued to walk past the extremely historic houses of Warren. The reasonable members of the family (Aoife and I) did not get so far into the history that we went and squished our faces up against the windows of some sort of fire station thing like SOME members of our family *cough cough (the parents)*.
Eventually we made the wise decision to return to our car, though we did see some alarming sights along the way, such as a truck with poor stuffed animal victims strapped to the front.
Since we needed something to take our minds off of all those BAD VIBES of STUFFED ANIMAL SUFFERING, we paid a visit to some lovely good vibed friends from the band Atwater Donnelly. We spent some time catching up with them in a socially distanced visit in their yard.
To finish off Warren, we devoured some delectable Coffee Cabinets at the world renowned Delekta Pharmacy. For those of you who don’t know, or aren’t true Rhode Islandahs, or aren’t Rhode Islandahs at all, a cabinet is kind of like a milkshake or a frappe. According to the Internet, we have them all mixed up here. (I just wanted to clarify that so y’all didn’t think we were eating wood. We’re not that crazy.)
So Warren was really fun and delicious, and definitely exceeded my expectations. See you later and remember, Mask up, buttercup!
Other places we've enjoyed in Warren:
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!
