But being unprepared for poor soil, squatting on Indian land, disease and famine meant 2 out of 3 didn’t make it during the initial years. So what’s the good news? Thousands more of your fellow Englishmen would be lusting for adventure and fortune, coming behind you to settle in the new frontier. But wait, there’s more – then there were the Dutch, French and the Spanish to contend with as well… and their religions and edicts from their leaders!

We spent the night at Point Judith State Park (Fishermans Memorial) only to find it rained all night, so no biking the next day. No problemo, we continued on to Newport Beach and checked out the mansions including the Breakers, Marble Mansion, Great Gatsby home and more. Finally, we enjoyed the scenic and impressive Fort Adams. Rhode Island gets its share of rain yet no wonder it truly has verdant views.

Of course, with such valuable real estate, it led to wars between the Native Americans, British and American Settlers.
