we got to providence early in the afternoon. we wandered around a bit, then i split off from mindy and her parents who went shopping while i went sketching. i always carry my sketchbook with me, and it's a great way to interact with a new environment, much more so than a camera. i walked around a lot of the downtown area, including the arts district, checked out the the state capitol, and the river.
providence seems like a pretty sleepy little town, quaint and comfortable, but we are mostly just here on a stopover on our way to maine. but i have a feeling mindy and i may be back.
