Tiverton Always Leads to Gray's Ice Cream

After Bloggy Boot Camp Boston on Saturday, I drove the Traverse down to Tiverton, RI. through downpours, thunder, lightning, rainbows, hail and lots of traffic on 93 and 95.  I couldn't get down there fast enough to catch up with the rest of the Stow clan.  Although it was absolutely lovely to be away for the day, I really did miss my kiddies a whole bunch. I was looking forward to a big glass of red wine, my mother-in-law's cornish pasty calling my name and finding out whether my brother-in-law and his wife had any *exciting news* to announce...oh how I love Traversin' it to Tiverton.

Tiverton, RI really is a gem.  Close enough to Newport, but away from its traffic and hustle and bustle.  Tiverton is even closer to Bristol, another quaint New England waterfront town, just over the Sakonnet River Bridge, followed by the narrow Mount Hope Bridge.  That one still scares me and Grandma.

We love exploring all the nearby towns, but on Sunday Chris and I took a drive through lovely Tiverton.  It really is a gorgeous town.  The sun was shining, it was Mother's Day, the kids stayed home with Grandma and Grandad and I made my husband take me out for the best ice cream around.  Where else, but Gray's?

Butter crunch, please!



Then we had a stroll around lovely Tiverton Four Corners.  I was sure to stop in at my favorite store in the neighborhood, The Cottage.


Distinguished and historic Tiverton Four Corners

Cookbooks, linens, candles, soaps.  The Cottage makes me want to entertain!

Then we hopped back in the Traverse for a scenic drive through the ins and outs of Tiverton.  Stay tuned...

My LTZ needs a serious wash!
**Oh and yes, little baby Stow is due on 11/11/11!  Congratulations Michael and Aimee!!!
