Disclosure: A couple of weekends ago, I had the opportunity to go to Narragansett, Rhode Island with Cabot Cheese and their fit team. We did a lot of fun fun like run a 10k, visit a farm, and have a cheese tasting. This trip was sponsored by Cabot, however all thoughts are my own.
*If you missed part one, be sure to check it out here.
We left off in my last post with our tour of EMMA Acres farm. After the tour, we drove over to a historical site, the Towers, and had lunch during a super fun trolley tour of Narragansett. There is so much history in the town so it was fun to hear all about it.
How adorable is our trolley bus?
This is one of my favorite homes we passed along the ocean:
After the tour we walked around inside the Towers and saw them setting up for a gorgeous wedding!
We briefly walked out onto the balcony before the storm hit. See the beach in this picture? That’s where the 10k would end the next day.
back to the Inn as it started to rain. This was the perfect opportunity to dig into my bag of snacks from Cabot and take a nap. Rainy days are perfect for that!
Soon it was time to walk to dinner (Have I mentioned how much I LOVED being able to walk everywhere?!?) at Trio. It was delicious, and a great pre-race meal at that.
After dinner we called it an early night since we were running the Ocean Road 10k in the morning! (You can read that recap here.)
After the race, we walked back to the Inn, grabbed showers then walked down to this cute little outdoor restaurant. It happened to be it’s last day of operation until spring. It was so wild to me that so many places “close up” for the winter, when it’s currently still in the 90’s in Florida.
The weather was absolutely perfect and we all enjoyed a light lunch and some girl talk before walking out onto some rocks for an impromptu photo shoot.
Then you guessed it, time to WALK (I love it!) again to a bed and breakfast where Cabot was hosting a cheese tasting for us. Yall. This place was gorgeous, and also for sale!
It was the perfect day to enjoy the tasting in the beautifully manicured backyard.
Although I have to say my favorite part of the house was the screened in porch. I could sit out there for hours!
We learned a little about the different cheeses and the aging process before trying everything ourselves. I learned a lot, I had no idea some of the processes were so long, and also how many different varieties there were–not to mention all the different pairings!
That evening we walked to dinner at the Coast Guard House for our farewell meal. It was right on the water and had gorgeous views.
It was a great way to recap the weekend and enjoy each other’s company before we would say farewell the next day.
It’s amazing to me how quickly I got to know these sweet girls, and how hard it was to say goodbye after only knowing them for a couple of days. I hope to see them again soon. I learned a lot about Cabot, and have a new respect for the farmers, families, and workers that make my dairy eating experience so effortless and amazing! I also fell in love with Narragansett, although this southern girl wouldn’t want to be there in the winter!
