Rhode Island coast south of Providence
More Rhode Island coast, Martha's Vineyard in the distance
My destination Block Island, RI lies 12 miles off the coast.

Block Island arrival
This would be right at home in Santa Cruz
Classic New England architecture all across the island
Circling for more views (and gain altitude) on departure
The downtown area with the ferry from the mainland
Aerial view of the Surf Hotel, next to the larger hotel that was on all the postcards
Eastern tip of Long Island, NY. From 4,000 ft over Block Island, I could see four states: NY, CT, RI, and MA
Back over the mainland, about at the CT/RI border, looking west toward Groton, CT.
Very brief stop at Groton, CT just long enough to take photos and use the restroom. Mark another state in the logbook. I believe this is the first time I have landed in 3 states in one day.
