It was a pretty drive, and I loved driving past New York City! Always a thrill for me. As we got closer to Rhode Island, a few trees were red and yellow, so I hope as we continue to head north in a few days, that there will be even more color.
Something that I had not factored in when I rented a car for our trip was all of the toll roads that we would encounter. We don't really have toll roads where we live and I totally forgot that the northeast was full of them! The other thing that I did not know, was the fact that you need a gizmo reader, on the windshield in many places, as there no way to pay the toll. According to the car rental dude, if we did not pay the $120, which included the gizmo and all the tolls that we acquired, we would be paying an $18 fee for each one that did not have a booth. He assured us that it was the best bang for our buck, and did not give us a choice.
So, if you are going to be travelling and renting a car in the northeast, be prepared to pay an extra $120 so that you can drive on their pot-holed roads!
Anyway, once we checked into our hotel, a Rodeway Inn, in Middleton, perfectly located I might add; we hit the store and figured we should try some clam chowda.....unfortunately, we listened to Trip Advisor and ended up at Flo's Clam Shack; it was adorable and had been there for decades!
I had a lobster roll. It was cold; with a packet of mayo. Joe had Clam chowder that tasted like chicken broth with a few potatoes and a splash of milk, and some fried clam cakes things, which were nothing but bad hush puppies, in my opinion. Blek!!
Tomorrow we will ask the locals where to eat.
I have a tummy ache and I am going to bed; tomorrow will be a better day.
