My Trip to Providence

Hello, everyone! I just wanted to write a little about my trip to Providence. The actual traveling time didn't take too long. It wasn't too tiresome. The first thing that I noticed when coming into Providence was the infamous lighthouse. I hope you enjoy the photos I took of it. Whenever I see that particular lighthouse, I wonder at the inspiration of the builders of the lighthouse. Who first thought of building a lighthouse in that location? What was their reasoning behind it? Were they drunk? Are they delusional? I wonder from where their inspiration came, and I also contemplate the grand addition that the lighthouse was to the entire town.

After my moment of reflection over the lighthouse, I continue on in my visit to Providence. I always enjoy eating all-you-can-eat wings at an establishment at Providence. In addition, there is a fantastic shop with homemade ice cream there. My favorite flavor would have to be their peanut butter chocolate ice cream. I prefer to get the ice cream in a sugar cone. I mostly like the sugar cone. I only need a little bit of ice cream. Other great eating establishments at Providence that I enjoy are Bruno's and El Gallo. I find Bruno's to be a fantastic location for Italian food. I am addicted to their Ravioli dish. Those who are employed there can write up my order as soon as I walk in the door. That is fantastic. El Gallo is great due to its salsa. It is my preferred location for salsa out of anyplace nearby.

What is any visit to Providence, or any place, for that matter, unless there is a stop at the visitor-frequented Super Wal-Mart? I, personally, try to avoid stepping into Wal-Mart as much as I can, but sometimes necessity causes me to take steps into the world of agency-stealing commerce. Fortunately, this Wal-Mart is complete with a McDonald's, just in case you get hungry while trekking across the expanse of the all-purpose store. Or perhaps it's just in case you actually start to get low on saturated fats due to the trek.... I guess it depends upon your perspective.

After having visited the local eateries and the hub of local commerce, it is time to bid Providence adieu. It's been a nice visit. Until the next time...

The lighthouse could have its purpose... you never know when someone is going to leave their hose running a little too long...

none of that stuff was finished when I moved...all that was there was a bookstore with a beehive theme. And of course the lighthouse, to warn wary shoppers of the looming wa-mart ahead, against which one might be dashed to pieces in turbulent times.

Why are all the retail buildings surrounding the lighthouse made of either barbecue- or fry-sauce-colored stucco? Of course, Wal-Mart and Home Depot are exceptions, but look at the rest! I think it's tacky. Of course, I think the lighthouse is tacky, too, but couldn't they at least coordinate their tackiness?

Why didn't I get a post card? Maybe we can make the trip together again in one week?
