It snowed again last night. But what a nice surprise to see that the seal had returned to the Sakonnet River. Almost every year this time we welcome the return of our salt water friend. Considering how much ocean we are surrounded by it is not often that you see these kind of animals in the Sakonnet River. So when our friend returns it makes me very happy and excited. I heard dolphins swam through the river last summer or maybe the summer before but unfortunately I missed them.
If you are near by you might want to come see the seal. It sits on the rocks just past Grinnell's Beach on Main Rd.
These are the best pictures I could get with my camera. It is days like this I wish I had a better camera (it is on the list).
While I have your attention let me give you a quick update on what is going on in Tiverton:
Two new public trails have recently opened at Weetamoe Woods. For more information about Weetamoe Woods go to Bill's Wild Outdoors or Tiverton Town Hall. There is also a 418 acre former dairy farm located in Tiverton called Eight Rod Farm Management Area where you can enjoy Canoeing, Freshwater Fishing, and Horseback Riding. It has be snowing so I would think it would also be nice for cross county skiing. Please check with RI DEM before Hiking, Horseback Riding, or possible cross country skiing this time of year to be sure it does not conflict with hunting season which includes deer hunting (archery & muzzle load only). It is stocked with pheasants during pheasant season and open to bird hunters. It is a great place to train your bird dog. Many hunters take advantage and take their dogs. FYI if you love these sports or this life style there is a nice property for sale abutting Eight Rod Farm Management Area (for more information please call me at (401) 369-1766 or e-mail email@example.com.
No matter what the season there is always something to do in Tiverton. About a week ago I took my grand daughter for a ride to get her to nap. We ended up at Fogland Beach where there were wind surfers. I have to admit I left the warmth of car to take a stroll on the beach to find some treasures. The great thing about town is no matter what part of town you live in you are never far away to enjoy these places.
Maybe you should call Tiverton home or your vacation home town. There are homes in every price range. Currently there are 22 homes available under $240,000.00 (not including mobile homes and 55+ communities). I saw a cute two bedroom today with a list price of $137,900.00. 30 homes listed between $240,000.00-$350,000.00, 38 homes listed between $350,000.00-$550,000.00 (the one located near Eight Rod Farm falls in this price range) 22 homes listed between $550,000.00-$850,000.00 and 16 homes listed at $850,000.00 or more. Information was obtained from the RI MLS.
Don't forget to come back often there are lots of nice towns that we will be visiting in the near future.
