West Main Rd. is a pretty much straight shot to Sakonett Point but it was also twenty miles of rolling hills. We worked this ride but it was also a really nice bike friendly and low traffic route.
At Sakonett Point, where this part of the continental US ends, we got off the bikes and checked the place out. The ocean was acting up this day with some pretty good waves. This place seems very upscale even though it's way out on the edge, so to speak. It's a good spot for celebrity types of any genre can hide from the public. A very exclusive inn Stonehouse 1854 also has a really ecletic reataurant that is one of our favorites. We only stayed a few short minutes because there was a lot of activity preparing for some sort of function.
A few miles further brought us the turn for the Commons which is kind of like downtown Little Compton.
Rhode Island's only town common is located in Little Compton. This is most likely a result of the town having been originally laid out by settlers from the Plymouth and Massachusetts Colonies. Land for the common was designated in August of 1677 and has been used ever since as both a religious and civic center for social activities in the town.We lunched at the Commons Restaurant which also boasts a couple of really good looking waitresses.
