Block Island free pdf Excerpt from Block Island: Illustrated Guide It is as a summer resort that Block Island has won the popularity she so well deserves. The other watering places along the coast have come into favor because of their splendor, show and gay festivities. In antithesis, our island offers to her visitors only the gifts with which Nature has endowed her, but these have proven to be of such strong appeal that her vogue is as widespread as that of her richer rivals. In fact Nature was lavish with her gifts to this little pear-shaped isle. In location it is unsurpassed. Washed on all sides by the Atlantic, it has the advantages of an island, yet is in close access to the mainland. Its rolling surface, and gradual slope from the high bluffs on one side to the smooth, sandy beach on the other, have proven a problem too great for scientists. Its rugged scenery, varied by green fields, cut off now and again by the characteristic stone fences, by sturdy, little hills, and ponds of all sizes and descriptions, vies with the alluringness of its marine attractions. Here, then, one finds shore and country ideally combined. Travellers have compared Block Island's gorgeous sunsets to those of Italy. Whereas the beauties of her moonlight nights are unequalled anywhere. Above all, one here, can view old ocean in its phases of infinite variety. Everchanging, it is now "blue, darkly, deeply, beautifully blue," now "golden beneath the sun-lit sky," now silvery in the moonlight. Block Island is, indeed, an ideal spot, which makes one feel the loveliness of Nature's work, and realize with Young that "The course of Nature is the art of God."
