Walk About Wickford

This was not one of our planned destinations. We got lost, came around a bend and over a little bridge when this sweet old town made us come to a complete stop. The quiet cove, the church bells, the white pillared town hall, the unusual shops, the old- buildings beckoned us to take a detour and stay here awhile in the charming old fishing village. A wonderful place to spend the afternoon. The people in this town are more than friendly, they’re downright chipper. Also, we discovered that Wickford is the home of author John Updike.
