Sachuest Point Wildlife Refuge

This is a national park in Middletown, Rhode Island.  It is a peninsula into the Atlantic Ocean with walking trails throughout.   Many visit for viewing the seasonal bird populations and, at opportune times, snowy owls.  The easterly shore is magnificently ragged.  I had an “oh-shit” moment here.  Perched atop a very high rock formation on the shore to take a picture during a storm, I was engulfed in a huge wave.  On the way to the refuge is a beautiful beach, Second Beach, and nearby is Third Beach.  The venues are very close to Newport.  A great walk in Newport would involve enjoying the Cliff Walk.  The magnificent mansions from Newport’s gilded era line the Cliff Walk, and there are many spots displaying gorgeous Atlantic vistas
