Little Compton, RI



These images were taken in late May 2011, on a trip to Rhode Island. I have to say, the area I stayed in has to be one of the pretties places I've ever seen. Little Compton personifies the true, down home, old time beauty you can still view in a New England town. 


United Congregational Church is located on the commons, as well as the cemetery. Just around the corner from the church is the Art Gallery. The perfect place to stop for a cup of coffee, a snack, and some unique shopping.



The wisteria was so much larger and more prolific than I see here in NH. As were the amazing brilliantly colored azaleas. I'll have to look and see if I have any photos of those. 

My goal was to arrive in Rhode Island while the sun was still up, and luckily I accomplished that goal because the next day was non-stop busy with an overcast sky. I'll always be grateful for the photos I captured when the sun illuminated the local beauty. Lately I just keep thinking about going back. Next time I'd like to go a bit more south to view some of the mansions in Newport.











I hope you enjoy the view!

You know what, I live in RI, and I have NO IDEA where Little Compton is. I guess it's somewhere near Warren? on the east bay? Phew. maybe South County? I have to check into this, I feel silly!

Beautiful pictures Sharon!!! The wisteria is gorgeous. I have wisteria on my arbor and it always blooms the first week of May. This year because it was so warm, the buds came early and then followed by a few cold nights. I'm sure I'll get a few survivors to bloom, but the majority of the buds were damaged by the cold. So nice to see your pictures since mine probably won't be very spectacular this year.
