A Magical Family Gathering of Three Generations

Bonnet Shores is a magical place. With access to the beaches only available to those staying in the neighborhood, it retains a welcoming, not-too-crowded family atmosphere not typical of most Rhode Island beaches.
We created a "family reunion" with grandmothers (two sisters) and their kids and grandchildren. Everyone could decide when they were ready to hit the beach, boogie board on the waves, build sand castles, hunt for shells, crabs or rocks, eat, nap, read, go for a walk, do the 1000 piece puzzle, enjoy the deck or take an excursion (Newport, Point Judith, Narragansett Pier). The beach is literally a 5 minute walk from the house, staffed by friendly, helpful lifeguards -- making all the moms feel that much safer for our first timers at the beach.
We cooked at the house every night (including a lobster boil after a trip to Gaillee seafood market) with the freezer stocked with homemade ice cream from nearby Brinkley's for dessert. With the views from the deck, there was no desire to go anywhere else!
So many family memories created...and we'll be going back for more!
