We had so much fun going to Scituate and Foster. We went to many different places such as the new ice cream place in Scituate which is called, Moose Trackers, the Scituate farmers market, and Jerimoth Hill.
Jerimoth Hill is the highest point in the U.S. state of Rhode Island. It is located in the town of Foster. It is 812 feet tall. At the top there was a rock that we stood on and took pictures. It was a short and easy hike and it was flat. There was a box at the top of Jerimoth Hill and it wasn’t a geocache. It had a logbook in it and we wrote our names in it. We also left a painted rock near the box. There is a geocache near the top of Jerimoth Hill, but my mom had already found it so we didn’t have to look for it this time. There were some old buildings at Jerimoth Hill, but we don’t really know what they used to be used for.
We also went to the Swamp Meadow Covered Bridge in Foster. It is the only covered bridge in Rhode Island. The other thing we did in Foster was drive by an alpaca farm. We didn’t stop, but we could see them from our car.
We also went to the North Scituate Farmers Market. We got different types of plants there because there was also a garden club sale going on across the street. At the garden club sale we got columbine, irises in different colors, and a ground cover plant. At the farmer’s market, we bought three tomato plants. Then we walked down the street to see a little garden with a church birdhouse in it. We also went to The Country Gardener shop and I asked my mom if I could buy a pepper plant and she said yes!
Another place we went to in Scituate was Frederickson Farm. There are lots of different parts to Frederickson Farm. There was a fireplace & grill store that had a pond with a waterfall and fish in it inside the store. There was also a bakery, cafe, and an ice cream shop. Next door there is a pizza shop, and around the corner there is a chocolate shop. It was fun to walk around the different stores at Frederickson Farm.
After that we went home to pick up Aemilia & Aoife. Aemilia was working earlier in the morning and Aoife wasn’t feeling good, but was better now. We drove to The Ponaganset River Dam to see the Scituate Reservoir. This is where the drinking water for almost all of RI comes from and there are old houses and villages under the water. We also visited Scituate Senior Center to see the little free library that our friends, Skye & Steve, made. Then we went to the new ice cream place in Scituate called Moose Trackers. Moose Trackers Ice cream was delicious. I got maple walnut with rainbow sprinkles and I loved it.

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!
