Travels: Block Island

Block Island features a small, exotic animal "zoo." This is an emu!

We trekked down 172 stairs and a steep rock face to get to this beach, and it was full of these unreal seven-foot-tall rock piles!

My family had never been to Block Island, RI before, so we booked a last-minute, three day trip. It was such a quaint, peaceful area–you can bike across the entire island in an hour. I’d love to go back for a day trip or an overnighter at some point.
