Beautiful Jamestown/Chasing Sunsets

Jamestown is one of my favorite places in Rhode Island.  My husband and I go to a restaurant every year on our anniversary called Simpatico.  Best chowder! We celebrated 29 years this year.  After dinner we took a ride because I wanted to chase the sunset.  Here are the results:

29 Years & Counting
